I’ve had some questions about why I didn’t get motions for summary judgment filed against all the defendants in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit by last Friday. That would have been the date they would have been due under the original schedule. However, the Scheduling Order doesn’t require that dispositive motions be filed by a specifically named date. It requires that they be submitted 100 days before the first day of the trial. Because the trial date has been put off for two weeks, the time to file dispositive motions was automatically extended. I may choose to use all of the extra time to polish additional motions for summary judgment—if I choose to file any. I could decide that it is to my advantage to go to trial against some of the defendants.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
