What’s next?
The attorney’s will be submitting post-trial briefs and probably some additional motions. These are due to the judge on December 2nd. He will hear oral closing arguments on December 9th at 1:30 pm. After that he will issue a tentative ruling and send to the attorneys who will then get a chance to submit written objections. After the judge considers these he will issue his final ruling. So this all sounds like not until at least January.
