Don't know IF this has been cancelled - no access to court site - maybe @Mica can look that up for me.... I'll post this until I hear any different. Maybe a video conference?

Hi Niner! Based on the court records it looks like the May 1st hearing might have been canceled. Next scheduled hearing is June 19th. I wonder if May 1 was vacated due to the pandemic. I no longer see it on the schedule.

Case #18HF0073

Thanks for the info. If it disappeared from the court site - it probably got vacated. I have seen that on other court sites where the date completely disappears.

Thanks to both of you, @Niner and @Mica! Well, August -- hmmm, we'll see.
A pre-trial hearing -- who knoze if it's a big deal or a little deal. This thing is like so, so many cases that we follow... Next verse, same as the first, but we do want to keep up with this one -- we are a patient and tenacious bunch... So we wait...
