Anyone who has ever been involved in court proceedings knows that Bleak House wasn’t a novel, it was a documentary.￼ legal stuff takes a long time.
Here’s what’s going on. (I’m assuming that you’ve been following the case so I’m not going to repeat everything you already know. If my assumption is faulty, I suggest that you go back to earlier posts and updates.)
You already know that the California Supreme Court ruled in my favor against the LA Times in a dramatic reversal of fortune.
At some point after that, could be a few weeks or it could be months, the court of appeal issues their decision.
Whoever loses appeals to the supreme court again.￼￼
If the LA Times loses, the Supreme Court probably won’t accept the case.￼ That means I get to begin discovery in the case actually becomes and the sword of Damocles of the anti-SLAPP motion goes away.￼
If I lose, there is still a chance that the Supreme Court would accept the case.￼ If they do, I live on. If they don’t, I’m screwed and I owe the LA Times hundreds of thousands of dollars for their legal fees.￼ Their lawyer charges $715 an hour.￼
Thank you everyone for your incredible support. I’m feeling good and confident that we are going to win. I’ll keep you posted.￼
