The following minute entry appeared today in the “removed” Dec. Action involving Slabbed New Media, Moi, Charles Leary, Vaughn Perret and Trout Point Lodge:
Minute Entry for proceedings held before Magistrate Judge John M. Roper: Status Conference held on 4/24/2012. Pursuant to a conference held on this date and after discussion among the parties, the Court determined that this matter may be resolved by dispositive motion. Parties will file dispositive motions within thirty days of receipt of the official transcript of the underlying proceeding held in Nova Scotia,Canada. Parties are ordered to exchange any transcripts retained.
The action is in the removed case as we’ll be dismissing the original suit that I filed. I’d now like to point out the following from 28 USCA § 4105:
In any action brought in a domestic court to enforce a foreign judgment for defamation, including any such action removed from State court to Federal court, the domestic court shall, absent exceptional circumstances, allow the party opposing recognition or enforcement of the judgment a reasonable attorney’s fee if such party prevails in the action on a ground specified in section 4102 (a), (b), or (c).
That is all.
