On Wednesday, March 20th, Judge Mary Teachout ruled on the State's Motion to Dismiss and the Plaintiff's (US) Motion for Summary Judgement. Both motions were dismissed, which means We Go To Trial! Please refer to the Timeline of Activities to see all that has gone on with the Court Case so far, or you can read Judge Teachout's reply to the motions here.
