#38 . . . Status On The Status Conference
A quick post this afternoon. In our second lawsuit against American Plastic and its licensees, I filed first for a preliminary injunction and second for a temporary restraining order.
The judge had us all on a telephone conference today and this was the result:
1. My motion for a temporary restraining order was denied on procedural grounds. Repeat, on procedural grounds. I didn't follow the correct practice/procedure rule when I filed it, and the judge denied it on those grounds alone. He addressed nothing about my underlying argument, but denied it based on procedure. The judge felt that the existing preliminary injunction filing was adequate.
2. The preliminary injunction motion is set for a full hearing in May 2009.
3. Responses to the preliminary injunction by the defendants were allowed. I argued they were out of time, but the judge relied on a Colorado case allowing a longer response period. Again, a procedural issue.
Aren't y'all glad you didn't go to law school? More rules than when you visit your Aunt who collects antique crystal and has white carpet!
More updates to come! Tomorrow is a full out law day, preparing some other motions to file. Talk to ya all later. Terri
