This is a direct quote from Judge Edward M. Chen, He’s the “shithole” countries” judge. He does good when everyone is watching but when the defendants are a multi-billion dollar insurance company who have already juiced him, this is what he does. He didn’t know he was being recorded.
“I mean the first opportunity is often a motion to dismiss under Rule 12, but we’re beyond that at this point so normally we reserve that and once I reset the schedule, um ah, hopefully at that point you’ll move for summary judgment…”Judge Edward M. Chen, July 29, 2017.
The transcript of that hearing is eye-opening.
“um ah, hopefully at that point you’ll move for summary judgment…it sounds like you’re going to move for summary judgment and that will probably happen as a series of motions at that point.Judge Edward M. Chen, July 29, 2017.
Thanks to the anonymous source for the recording.
