Stoller Hearing Adjourned!Update posted by Rick Jaffe Esq
Ken Stoller's hearing which was scheduled to begin on Monday has been adjourned for a few months. The new date will be set by the judge by the end of next week.
Don't read anything into it. Earlier today, I made a motion to continue the hearing because I have been sick for the last few weeks. I think I got the flu from traveling back from SFO last month. It did not seem prudent to travel to the hearing sick, or expose other people. given the current situation. The Deputy Attorney General (who would have had to sit 6 feet away from me) wisely decided not to oppose the motion. Interestingly, the Office of Administrative Hearings, which I would not consider to be on the cutting-edge of audio/video/wifi/internet technology in terms of hearings, is considering ways to handle remote parts of hearings, via teleconferencing and such. Good for them, and it means that regardless of what happen, we will go forward with the hearing next time.
The good news is that this will give us some time to think and adapt to the judge's recent rulings, and maybe in a couple months things will settle down. To modify one of my favorite sayings, better to be lucky (or sick) than good.
