In Shepard v. Madigan
(NRA case), we've had cross-motions for summary judgment hanging around and a motion for a preliminary injunction, just sitting out there. On 9/2, the defendants filed a Motion to Defer a Ruling on the Existing MSJ
This motion says that the State needs time to effect Discovery... Since the entire suit "is a pure issue of law that requires no discovery",
discovery is a stall tactic. Go back and see what happened in Benson
and you'll see what Madigan is trying to do.
Yesterday, the plaintiffs filed their Response to Motion to Defer Ruling
This is a 4 page brief, in which the plaintiffs NRA/Shepard is calling out the defendants stalling tactics.
