They got to the judge!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary judgment is only appropriate where there is “no genuine issue of material fact and” the moving party “is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
If as reported, this is a complete travesty of law. Maybe impeachment fodder (I wish).
This would allow the case to go immediately to the appellate court, yes? If a jury found against TM, they would likely appeal anyway yes?
So is this just possibly a time-and-money-saver decision?
Note, given the court time, it’s also a saver of taxpayer money.
