Plaintiff moves to continue the trial setting in July 2010 because her counsel's daughter is getting married. The Court rules as follows. Inasmuch as Plaintiff's counsel admits to committing the crime of an attempted bribe, the Court is inclined to deny the motion. Inasmuch as Plaintiff's counsel really doesn't want a continuance and, in reading between the lines, is seeking the Court's help to stop this wedding the court is inclined to deny the motion. Inasmuch as the young man referred to really shouldn't have to put up with Plaintiff's counsel as a father-in-law, the Court is inclined to deny the motion. However, inasmuch as the young man referred to deserves to spend the rest of his life with the daughter of his future mother-in-law, the Court is inclined to grant the motion, and inasmuch as the young man referred to has been risking his life for the betterment of all of the citizens of this nation, and he obviously wants to marry the young woman referred to and because this soldier would want him to, the Court will most definitely GRANT the motion. The Court will set a firm trial date during the Final Pretrial Conference. Signed by Chief Judge David R. Herndon on 2/23/10. (klh, )THIS TEXT ENTRY IS AN ORDER OF THE COURT.
