Judge Mason found that while Aaron Walker was entitled to have his motions for summary judgment granted, the issues related to punitive damages will require a trial. Aaron was granted partial summary judgment and will not have to prove that the Kimberlins filed the criminal complaints and that the State dropped the charges.
Next week will be consumed with a fast-track discovery process, and the trial will begin on the 11 October. Aaron Walker will be deposed for two hours next Wednesday, and so will Tetyana Kimberlin. The Kimberlins will have to provide answers to limited numbers of interrogatories and requests for admissions. Aaron will have to respond to the Kimberlins’ interrogatories.
Believe it or not, everything is more or less proceeding as I have foreseen.
