Thank you for the summation. That does help me to understand what is going on better....some of it anyway. I guess some of it is legal "strategy".
You're welcome. There's certainly some strategy or posturing going on .. K2 lawyers say they won't submit Deepak for depositions until all parties are named. Then they intentionally delay naming Skeeters' estate as a party. There's really no reason to delay .. they can always dismiss him later if they want to. They say they are evaluating whether to name him and collect from his insurance company, but again there's no reason not to name him other than delaying/avoiding depositions.
Will the Judge hear this motion on the 30th?
If so, do you think he'll rule from the bench or more waiting?
Do you know what the Hearing scheduled/conference in Sept. (I think) re: Beth & Dave and The Kalpoe's suit is concerning? I thought that the wrongful death suit was dismissed flat out for lack of jurisdiction in CA.
