From my understanding ” He was firm on his instructions to the attorneys, not a lot of motions will be recognized, he does not want the case to spin out of control. He wants to get to the truth! He stated ” good lawyers can come together and move the case Post hast”. He gave full go ahead on the discovery with no restrictions. I feel this Judge is fair but firm and understands his job. The plaintiffs attorneys were quite satisfied. The attorneys will begin with the discovery next week. ”

The shit has hit the fan now I understand why the Mayor went to Police State mode IMHO he is so fucked might the only way out be to put someone under the bus?

I also get a feeling that other issues and actors will be brought in to play.

    Think this will actually get into discovery, or will the negotiations begin immediately?

    • Negotiations ASAP before the Feds get interested. Sadly the fear of Dickert’s Police State will stop this from being an issue in the Race for Mayor.
      The Mayor must be pleased that he too has the tools just like his Pal Obama to go after ANYONE who may speak out Right? Has not Helding called us Terrorists?

  3. Bucky says:

    I guess the negotiations part would also be up to the plaintiffs. If they don’t want to settle and want this to go to trial, the offers could get interesting. What more have they got to lose by holding out?
