As I have been covering, Realogy and Coldwell Banker were set to try the latest TCPA MEGA case with hundreds of millions on the line (or perhaps less, now that Six Mexican Workers just came along).
The case of Bumpas v Realogy Brokerage Group N.D. Cal Case No. 3:19-cv-03309-JD was set to try on November 28, 2022 and I simply couldn’t wait!
Unfortunately, however, I’m going to have to wait a bit longer. The district court bailed on the trial noting it has a criminal matter that needs to try sooner:
ORDER. The Court has a criminal trial with priority over this case. The pretrial conference set for November 10, 2022, and the jury trial set for November 28, 2022, are vacated. The parties are directed to propose by November 24, 2022, a trial date in April 2023. Signed by Judge James Donato on 10/24/2022. (This is a text-only entry generated by the court. There is no document associated with this entry.) (jdlc3, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 10/24/2022) (Entered: 10/24/2022)
So we’ll all have to wait until April for this very interesting case to move forward to trial.
We’ll keep an eye on it.
Related, Ron Chinitz cold called me today to provide a bit of background. Interesting story he had to tell…
