At the link (within the quoted docket) we see that Chicago is complaining that the Plaintiffs are not playing fair. Document 190 is Judge Kendall ordering briefs on the motion.
I can hardly wait to see Alan Gura's response.
When we talk about delays, how can Chicago, with a straight face, complain about the plaintiffs! They (Chicago) have done everything they can to string this out.
When we talk about the nature of the interrogatories, Chicago asked questions that were not even close to being on point, and the Magistrate allowed it, despite the plaintiffs objections.
I expect this Judge to bow to Chicago's demands, even as the court has done in the past.
Gura is building another set of circumstances with which to appeal.
