Your guess is as good as mine – the notice on the docket simply said:
RESET STATUS HEARING: Status Hearing RESET for 1/12/2011, 1:00 P.M., in Courtroom 506, Gulfport, Ms, before District Judge L. T. Senter, Jr. ALL Attorneys, who will participate in Trial, to be present.
We limited the audience to plaintiff’s lawyers, selected members of the media and a representative from Congressman Gene Taylor’s office. As legal strategy was discussed we didn’t want the other side to benefit from what we knew thus the security measures. We had plaintiff’s lawyers contact us from as far away as West Virginia and had an inquiry from Mississippi State Government on attending. (The plaintiff’s lawyers was invited but MID was not.)
Along those lines we continue to be humbled by the quality of our readership from across this land. Several months ago I contacted Rutgers Law Professor Jay Feinman, author of Delay, Deny and Defend and a friend to this blog to see if he come down here for book signing and possibly speak at another legal confab. I just heard from Jay and he will be down here in Soggy Bottom at the tail end of March and he’d be delighted to stay over a day or so to participate in the first annual Slabbapalooza. We’re targeting March 25th.
I’d like to invite the entire Slabbed Nation, even you guys on the insurance defense bar and at LDOI and MID to come hear Professor Feinman speak. We’d like to keep this a free event and I can do that over here in Soggy Bottom but we are not averse to holding it in NOLA, access to meeting space being the main concern.
We’re trying to gauge interest so we can hone the event. Shoot me an email or leave a comment on this post. I’ll update when we have a firm date, time and place.
Didn’t I read someplace that the Republicans have repealing the recently passed financial re-regulation legislation as a priority for next year? ‘Tis a silly world when economic theory becomes a religion eh folks….
Sometimes a quick video clip says it all. Texas law requires insurance adjusters to be “open and honest” with homeowners and deal with them in a way that is “fair and reasonable.” But insurance companies regularly fail to abide by their legal duties to homeowners. And in this deposition footage, a home insurance adjuster just can’t explain why he has so much difficulty understanding the law.
