We had the final (of 3) pre-trial conferences on February 16, ostensibly to determine how the kids were getting along with the new 77 schedule, changed from 2255. Of course, if you saw "Update 2," you know that the Ex refused to allow the change in schedule.
The Ex did not show up at this conference. Evidently, she fired the lawyer (#7) that showed up at the January 6 conference, and hired #8, without ever filing the change of attorney form with the court. After about 20 minutes without the Ex or her lawyer, the Judge became very irate. She saw lawyer #7 in the hall who had showed up for the next conference and pulled him in. He said that he had been fired and thought that the Ex had a new lawyer. The Judge instructed a clerk to phone the supposed new lawyer. After about 10 minutes, they got the new lawyer on the phone who seemed to know almost nothing about the case, except that she said that she would file for Summary Judgment to find for her client to have sold custody based on the fact that there is no such thing as parental alienation (the new lawyer had no idea that the Judge already ordered a trial specifically to try the issue of parental alienation).
So, the Ex has filed for Summary Judgment with a March 22 hearing date.
