Although there was no ruling on the attorneys’ fees today, Judge Friedman did issue an order…
On January 10th, Judge Friedman denied Patricia Robinson’s request for permission to file a Motion for Interpleader.
We’re not sure who Patricia Robinson is or why she wanted to file a motion for interpleader because the documents themselves are not available since the request to file the motion was denied.
A motion for interpleader ususally occurs when a stakeholder has conflicting claims to money held for others’ benefit and the stakeholder wants the court to decide what to do. We’re not sure how that would apply in this situation but the fact that the Judge denied the request to file may be a good thing in that it might avoid further delays for payment.
We’ll update when we know more.
