IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
February 26, 2007
ADM INVESTOR SERVICES, INC., PLAINTIFF,
THOMAS RAMSAY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
During the course of the February 22, 2007 status hearing in this action, counsel for plaintiff ADM Investor Services, Inc. ("ADMIS") advised both counsel for defendant Thomas Ramsay ("Ramsay") and this Court that he understood the entry of a final order in the Texas litigation between the parties was imminent. And indeed, on the very next day ADMIS' counsel faxed to this Court a copy of an order of dismissal of that case, reflecting the order's having been signed on February 21 and filed in the office of the District Clerk in Hopkins County, Texas on February 23.
Much too much time has already been spent in procedural skirmishes in this matter (it will be remembered that this lawsuit is a refiling of an action that was brought months earlier in 2006 and was then dismissed without prejudice because of the then pendency of the Texas action). This action is of course no longer stayed, and this Court expects that on March 27 (the date this Court set for a next status hearing at the conclusion of the February 22 hearing) the parties will report a great deal of progress in bringing the action to a point at which an early disposition will be possible.
