JUDGES GET PEEVED

When one ignores them. Counsel for David Terrazas, Docket No. 2498-19, filed 11/3/20, was scheduled for trial back in April, along with a companion case, but COVID-19 put paid to that.

I’ll defer to Judge Elizabeth A (“Tex”) Copeland to tell the story of said counsel’s delictions.

“During February 2020, respondent’s counsel attempted to contact petitioners’ counsel, TB, about the cases but did not receive a response. On May 19, 2020, the Court ordered status reports to be issued on July 6, 2020 and every 60 days thereafter. Mr. B did not provide any status reports. After respondent timely filed his July 6, 2020 status report and Mr. B failed to provide a status report, the Court made several attempts to contact Mr. B for a telephone conference with the parties. The Court made attempts on or around July 10, 2020 through July13, 2020 and left voicemail messages each time. When a representative of this Division of the Court finally spoke with Mr. B, on or around July 14, 2020, he misinformed the Court that the cases had been resolved and that the parties would be settling. Respondent had not agreed that the cases had been resolved; in fact, respondent had not heard from Mr. B since October 2019.

“Respondent filed Respondent’s Status Report on September 4, 2020. Again, the Court attempted to contact Mr. B on September 4, 2020 and September 5, 2020, leaving messages for a conference call with the parties to the cases.

“The Court then ordered a conference call for October 19, 2020. Mr. B did not show for the ordered conference call.” Order, at pp. 1-2. (Name omitted).

Judge Tex Copeland orders Mr B to get with it or get tossed. And his clients are getting a copy of this order. Note Judge Tex Copeland’s forbearance in not showing Mr B the Section 6673 yellow card.
