Rockford litigation update

Last year I wrote a post about an antitrust lawsuit involving a number of real estate players in Rockford, Illinois. Since plaintiff filed his complaint, the various defendants have responded with motions to dismiss, motions for a more definite statement, Answers and Motions to Compel Arbitration/Stay Litigation. Presently Judge Bucklo estimates that her rulings will be in the mail around July 6, 2007.

In the "Report of Parties’ Planning Meeting" filed with the Court on March 27, 2007, the parties collectively estimated that they will need to take approximately seventy (70) depositions, and that the case would be ready for trial in March 2010, taking approximately thirty (30) days to complete.

I have to think that this case will settle, but you never know. While various matters will likely demand her attention beforehand, the Court has set the next status date for March 28, 2008.
