will now be consolidated with Haynie
and Richards I.
Here's a rundown of what is happening, for those of you that are confused.
Back on Mar. 25th, 2010, Donald Kilmer Filed the Haynie lawsuit
(Mark Haynie, Calguns Foundation and SAF, plaintiffs). After some finagling, one of the defendants were dropped (they met an agreed to damages claim) and an amended complaint
was filed about a year later.
Things finally began to proceed as we have seen in other cases. On May 6th, 2011, defendants filed a MTD.
Meanwhile, Jason Davis filed a lawsuit
on May 20th, 2011 (Brendan Richards, Calguns Foundation and SAF, plaintiffs). A notice of related case (Haynie
) was also filed.
On that same day, Haynie
plaintiffs filed a response to the MTD and a notice of related case (Richards).
On May 27th, 2011, the Haynie
defendants filed their reply to the response and notice of related case.
On June 8th, 2011, the Court related Richards
That is where the Richards
docket stops. On the Haynie
docket, the consolidation of cases formally took place on June 22nd, 2011.
The hearing on the defendants MTD was held on Aug. 10th, 2011. The matter was submitted to the court.
Meanwhile, Richards was re-arrested for the much same thing he was originally arrested for. The plaintiffs immediately notified the defendants and asked for a joint stipulation, which the defendants declined.
On Oct. 20th, 2011, the court granted the defendants MTD but also granted the plaintiffs leave to file a consolidated amended complaint
. That was filed on Nov. 4th, 2011.
In this consolidated complaint, plaintiffs reiterated much of the older complaints and attacked the Judges ruling on the MTD, as Richards was in fact arrested again, despite the Judges opinion that this could scarcely happen ever again.
plaintiffs, then filed a separate lawsuit for this new offense.
On Nov. 18th, instead of filing a response to the complaint, Defendants moved for more time to file and noticed the court of the new lawsuit and its relatedness. The court granted the extension of time to file, on Nov. 23rd.
This allowed both the plaintiffs and defendants to proceed and have the cases related. That order
was granted last Friday, the 16th. The complaint
in this new action is very specific and will be made part of the consolidated cases.
The defendants now have until Monday, Dec. 26th to file their response to the complaint(s).
