Safety Dance Continues III

Let’s discuss the latest Safety Dance court order (pdf). Day 3 of 3.


Other highlights:

1) Good sign for Doe that the Court recognizes the sloppiness/malice of the Williams process. They were out to get Doe from the beginning and, in the end, they got their (former) Eph.

2) New complaint is due May 12. Let’s hope (?) that Rossi, Doe’s attorney, gets her act together and produces a better pleading.

3) Any predictions? I guess (?) that it made sense for the College to fight up until this point on the (realistic?) chance that the case might have been thrown out. But now? Settle the case! Give Doe his degree.

Do other readers think the College should fight? If so, why?

As I mentioned in a previous comment in another thread about this, a plaintiff is often damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t when it comes to the complaints. On one hand, he must present sufficient factual allegations with enough detail to overcome the burden of proof hurdles. Then, on the other hand, the complaint risks getting dinged for being long winded and lengthy, as in this case.

I don’t think that having to file a shorter complaint necessarily will make for a “better” complaint and, in fact, could cause an obstacle to being able to plead sufficient enough facts, particularly in a case that involves so much time and so many events.

To me, the ruling on the Rule 8 issue seems somewhat like overreach and feels as if the judge has a bias.
