Pending motions

Defendants Thomson, Nagel and Cabezud have filed motions to dismiss the complaint. The Impact Defendants (Catledge, Brimley and the companies) have filed a Motion for More Definite Statement. A hearing on these motions was held on June 8th, 2009, and the Judge took them under advisement and should issue a ruling soon.

The Impact Defendants also moved to strike from the record certain documents filed by the Department in support of its opposition to the Motion for More Definite Statement. The Judge denied that motion.

The Impact Defendants have now filed a Motion to Seal the record so that the documents they sought to strike will not be available to the public. This motion has not yet been set for hearing.
