A hearing regarding the defendants MTD was rescheduled for today but I just read in another post from Gene that it has been vacated due to a judge reassignment on the case. This is the 2nd delay in getting the wheels in motion on the case.

Can anyone advise what the timing of the reassignment is? Once reassigned, is the MTD reinstated or does the defendant have to file it again?

Aaaargh! These months between actions are so frustrating!

Here is the link regarding the reassignment:

The judge may have been reading the filings on the case and just decided, I'm not dealing with this...

I assume that the notice was entered by the Courtroom Deputy Clerk, before seing sent back to the clerks office for "random" reassignment...

Presumably waiting for a new judge... nothing can happen until then.

AFAIK all briefs filed still stand. There should be no reason to re-file.
