    I'm not sure why it says that. Doesn't make much sense since their trial dates are both scheduled on 6/2. Odd.

    Hey @Tippy Lynn - was wondering if there might be new court dates for the both of them?

    I do now see the Stephen's trial will start 8/21/20 - I missed that when I read it the first time.

    TIA! :)

    Okay - I "see" my mistake - they were supposed to have a trial on 8/21/2019 - which has been changed to 6/2/20.... [​IMG] Here I thought that was Stephen's trial date of 8/21/2020....


    so - nothing "new" on the docket for next hearing? Maybe in May? :) TIA!

    @Tippy Lynn - hope all is going well with you & you are staying healthy! :)

    Just going thru my list of hearings for this coming Monday & I have both of them scheduled for Trial Readiness hearing. I do have a note that says Attorneys only, so maybe a video conference with just attorneys & Judge?

    TIA! [​IMG]

    Looks like both of them are scheduled for Trial Readiness hearings on Monday, 5/4. It doesn’t say if the hearings are being conducted via video conferencing or not. The hearings on 4/15 were by video.
