My cousin is a lawyer and he talks about delays as just being part of the game.

As a lawyer, I can say that delays happen even when you're trying to prevent them. One side or another could have a family emergency. The judge might have the same. Or another obligation pops up for someone that they absolutely cannot get out of (non-emergency surgery, nephew's out of town wedding, etc.) Yes, some attorneys and some companies do purposely delay things, but without the paperwork on the case, we can't say whether it's being delayed on purpose, or because of a legitimate reason. And there are lots of things that could be legitimate reasons. If the judge has granted the continuance, then we have to assume it was a legitimate reason, or it would have been denied. Could it be a fake reason to delay? Sure. But we don't know that.

The plaintiff has requested and received a continuance so the trial will not be held next week.

Sorry to hear that. I know you must be ready to end this.

Sheesh.
Dave, where's the trial taking place? If it's nearby, I'll buy you lunch.


No worries, I owe Dave coffee and donuts. If he has time, I think lunch would be a good substitute. Besides, the trial may only last a few minutes. A motion or two and the whole thing could be out the door.

I would like to see them in court trying to prove they aren't scammers. I have heard nothing but bad things about them. My thoughts are with you and if I can get to a place where I can donate, I will most certainly.

You have writers everywhere behind you, Dave.

Nothing says "best wishes" like cash . . .

I just made another donation.

Good luck, Dave.

what time

what time does the case start?

I want to get there early to get a good seat. Don't want to miss anything.

My only regret is that they won't let my son video tape the proceedings.
