IKO Status Update - August 2016

The presiding judge in this matter, Judge Harold A. Baker, recused himself from this matter on July 15, 2016. The case has been reassigned to Judge James Shadid. There are two motions currently pending before the Court. On March 4, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a Motion for Class Certification and on October 22, 2014, Defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. Since then, the Parties have routinely updated the Court with recent decisions that they believe will impact the outcome of the two pending motions. On April 4, 2016, Judge Baker asked the Parties to submit supplemental briefing incorporating the information submitted by the Parties. The Parties submitted supplemental briefs, concluding their briefing on June 6, 2016. The new schedule and reassignment likely means that the Court will not issue a decision on either motion until Fall 2016 at the earliest. We will keep you apprised of any developments.
