While I have been quite busy -- joyfully paying close attention to one other particular development, there was a status conference and trial plan update in Brooklyn's federal District courthouse -- in that MDL addressing the erectile dysfunction claims against Kenilworth.
We should know the bellwether trial order, for the first six, by Halloween (and my earlier backgrounder on those cases); here is the rest:
. . . .The parties stated that they are proceeding on track with the schedule set forth in the Second Amended Discovery and Trial Plan PPO 10 . They have submitted their selection of cases for the First Bellwether Tranche, which the Court will endeavor to select on or before October 28, 2016. The Court noted that a Daubert hearing will be held after full briefing, on a date to be determined, as stated in PPO 10 Order paragraph 13. The parties were directed to file a joint status report by March 3, 2017 reporting on the progress of discovery and raising any issues which need to be addressed. . . .
Now you know. What a glorious evening -- sailing straight on (second star to the right), into morning, now. . . Cubs coming home to close out, and head to the Series -- and small banking errands to be completed shortly. Smile. . . .
