Is Yoko v. Expelled judge incompetent?
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, that answering papers, if any, shall be served upon Plaintiffs by hand delivering copies thereof to Plaintiffs counsel, Shukat Arrow Hafer Weber & Herbsman LLP, 111 West 57th Street, New York, New York 10019 on or before May _14_, 2008 at 5:00 p.m.; and
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, that reply papers, if any, shall be filed with the Court and served upon Dendants (sic) by hand delivering copies thereof to be retrieved by Defendants’ counsel, on or before May _16_, 2008 at 5:00 p.m..
Because the court rules allow electronic transmission of papers if the receiving party consents, I previously expressed surprise that the judge required hand delivery. Now looking at the deadlines for delivery, I see that the plaintiffs' attorneys, when receiving the final answering papers, have as little as 48 hours to have reply papers hand-delivered to the defense attorneys at the other end of the country. That's ridiculous. This judge is off his rocker.
