To Trial Appellate-Level Oral Argumentation

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 2:21 PM

If I read this right, it looks like the appellate court just set a trial date for appellate arguments in the case of People v. Pacific Lumber. That's District Attorney Paul Gallegos' suit against Palco for allegedly fraudulent actions committed by the company during the Headwaters Deal. Yes, the one that caused all the fuss.

Tiny precis: A visiting Lake County judge threw the massive lawsuit out of court two years ago. Gallegos filed an appeal a few months later. There the case languished. Pacific Lumber's bankruptcy at the beginning of 2007 threatened to put it on permanent hold. But then the company unilaterally agreed to let it go forward.

Court date: Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 9 a.m.

UPDATE: Lawyers and their jargon...
