Another court date today and I wonder if, as before, the attorneys will meet in chamber with the Judge, return to the courtroom and we leave with no action. The request for class action was denied at this point as "moot" and I have no idea what is next. The original attorney on the case, KURT WICKLUND has moved on to another firm and had to remove himself from the case. He spent a tremendous amount of time working on the case and we owe him a debt of gratitude for taking on the case that no one else wanted to touch. SCOTT A CIOLEK continues to carry the torch along with the newest attorney to the case, ANTHONY J DEGIDIO. They have now filed an appeal on the class action decision:
3/24/2009: Title : PLD:DOCKETING STATEMENT, PURSUANT TO APP R 3(G) AND 6TH DIST LOC APP R 3(C)
Today is about:
THE COURT HEREBY ORDERS THAT THE PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR PARTIAL SUMMARY JUDGMENT IS OVERRULED. THE COURT FURTHER ORDERS THAT THE PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO STAY RULING ON CLASS CERTIFICATION IS OVERRULED AS MOOT. COURT FURTHER ORDERS THAT THE PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR CLASS CERTIFICATION IS OVERRULED. FURTHER ORDERED THAT THIS CASE IS SET FOR
A PRETRIAL CONFERENCE ON MARCH 27, 2009 AT 2:00 P.M.
If anyone would like to come and observe the legal system at work, you are welcome.
LUCAS COUNTY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS, JUDGE: CHARLES J. DONEGHY
