Motion to compel, motion for stay

The Department has filed a motion to compel Mr. Catledge to respond to discovery filed by the Department in August, 2009. This motion is set for hearing on Monday, May 24, 2010, at 1:30 PM in Judge Wilper's courtroom.

Catledge and the Impact Defendants have filed an opposition to the State's motion, and have also filed a motion requesting a temporary stay of the State's case. The gist of Catledge's motion for a stay is that he is under investigation by the FBI and the US Attorney's Office in the Northern District of California, and he believes the State's action should be stayed until the criminal action (if any comes out of the investigation) is resolved.

This issue will also be heard on May 24th.
