The ruling from Carter cited his hearing on Monday on the government's motion to dismiss, explaining, "Argument by counsel. Motion taken under submission."
Then the judge continued, "On September 8, 2009, the court previously set tentative case management dates. The court now orders those dates be made final."
The order listed a motion for summary judgment hearing Dec. 7, 2009 , at 8:30 a.m., with a time frame to file that motion Nov. 16, and opposition required by Nov. 26.The final pretrial conference is scheduled Jan. 11, 2010, while the jury trial is Jan. 26, 2010.
Attorney Orly Taitz, who is representing several dozen of the plaintiffs in the case, was optimistic, telling WND it is reasonable to believe that a definitive trial date would preclude a positive response to the government's motion to dismiss.
Well, doesn't that sound serious?
The judge is apparently keenly interested in this case and is taking it seriously. What other explanation for finalization of these dates, including the start of the trial?
