On 21 February, I filed a motion to compel compliance with discovery and a petition for a show cause order for contempt against Bill Schmalfeldt in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. Under the terms of the scheduling order Judge Hecker issued in the case, the Cabin Boy™ had ten days to respond to my filings. I served the Cabin Boy™ by mail to his last known address the very same day as I filed the papers with the court.
Let’s see now … the next day would have been the 22nd. Hmmm. 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, and the 28th. That’s seven days. The 1st of March, the 2nd, and the 3rd make ten days. Why, that would mean that the Cabin Boy’s™ responses were due yesterday, but I didn’t receive service of any such filings. If I didn’t, I’ll bet the court didn’t either. If that’s the case, then my motion to compel and my petition for a show cause order are unopposed. Judges are much more likely to grant an unopposed motion.
