Well, it’s been really really quiet since Dick’s deposition. They were supposed to file their expert’s report on Monday, but asked for an extension. My attorney wrote to Dick and his attorney and basically said something like â€œsince it is obvious after the depositions that you have ABSOLUTELY no case, where do we go from here? Do we schedule this for trial? Will you admit that we are right and you are wrong?â€
My opinion is that Dick’s attorney is trying to talk some sense into him. I can’t explain it, but something changed when he lied and his attorney realized he was lying. It was a subtle shift in the room as if everyone except Dick realized how stupid this all was.
Part of me feels vindicated and part of me is just plain tired of it all. In the deposition, Dick admitted that he didn’t have any money. Then he started talking about how he had a few jobs he was bidding on. My attorney asked him how he would pay me if he lost and he just kept saying that he had these jobs coming up that would fund his business. I think he’s spent every dime he has on attorney’s fees and he’s hoping at this point just to try and get something, anything out of this to save face and avoid bankruptcy. I’ve thought long and hard about it though and there is no way I will pay him anything, even 10 dollars to just go away.
Well, I guess we just wait and see what his expert report says. It should be interesting!
