During the May 24th hearing on the State's Motion to Compel and Catledge's Motion for Stay, counsel for Catledge verbally converted their Motion to Stay to a Motion for Protective Order. The judge directed counsel to prepare a draft protective order.
Catledge's counsel and I have been negotiating the terms of the order. I expect we will reach some agreement and will submit that to the judge for his review and approval.
The judge did not rule on the State's Motion to Compel, as that was essentially subsumed by the Motion for Protective Order. Counsel are also negotiating terms of future discovery.
