There’s a motions hearing scheduled for next Tuesday in the Circuit Court for Carroll County in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.
A quick look at various airline sites late yesterday evening showed that all the cheap seats from Sacramento or Fresno to Baltimore are sold out. Still, Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson has a couple of days left to see if Judge Hecker will grant his request to appear by telephone.
Considering that the Cabin Boy’s™ request to phone it in was denied, Ferguson’s best case scenario is probably permission to appear by video, but given three business days for mail to move from Westminster to Live Oak, he may not find out the details of such an order in time to make any arrangements, even if such an order were granted and mailed today.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
