I think so, Brain … but there are people who could lose their minds but not miss them.

Yesterday morning, I filed what is known as a Rule 2-504.2 statement with the court in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. All the parties to the case were supposed to have filed one by close of business yesterday so that the magistrate who is presiding over the pretrial conference next Friday can prepare for that meeting.
Rule 2-504.2 lists topics that should be covered in the statement depending on which party is providing the information. In my statement I listed the facts I intend to use to prove my case, suggested simplifications and limitations of issues, detailed the damages I’m claiming and the relief I’m seeking, listed of documents I plan to offer as evidence, and identified my prospective witnesses.
The pretrial conference is scheduled for 10:30 Friday morning. The scheduling orders says:
All interested parties to a case … shall personally be in attendance at the pretrial conference. Failure to do so will result in the continuance of the pretrial conference and sanctions, including attorney’s fees.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
T-minus 6 days and counting.
There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may not some day be applied to phenomena of the real world.
