I have previously reported that several of the defendants in the Gilmore v. Jones, et al. case had filed a motion for sanctions against the plaintiff and his attorneys for violations of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, that the plaintiff and his attorneys had filed a motion seeking to delay consideration of sanctions until after the 13 November hearing on motions to dismiss, and that defendants who file the sanctions motion have opposed any such delay. The court has denied the plaintiff’s motion seeking the delay and has ordered that briefing for the sanctions motion go forward. The motion will be before the court on the 13th.
I plan to be in Charlottesville on the 13th to cover the hearing.
