The federal appeals court in our case granted our request for oral arguments some time ago and scheduled them for Jan. 29. But when the government shut down, the Department of Justice petitioned the court for a delay.
On Wednesday, the court denied the Justice Department request.
I'm pleased to be moving forward, as each delay costs time and money. On the other hand, the Justice Department has an endless supply of your tax money with which to fight my lawsuit.
The fact that the court denied the Justice Department's request to delay is not a signal as to how the court views my case one way or the other.
Thank you for your support. And I deeply appreciate the organizers of the Attkisson 4th Amendment Litigation fund and those who have been kind enough to contribute. We are already nearing 1/4 of their goal! For more information, click here.
