Dickie et. al. sufferred two more setbacks that I don’t have time to opine on, but I will just put out there.
Today, in the McIntosh case, Judge Senter upheld a Magistrate Court ruling that Dickie and Zach would be compelled for discovery. Basically, now that the Judge Acker case is done from a criminal perspective, their 5th amendment claims hold no merit. My gut says that Dickie and Zach will attempt to go to the 5th Circuit just for time’s sake.
It appears the strategy for Dickie is to hold back the water as much as possible until after sentencing. Or to encapsulate their strategy another way . . . . DELAY DELAY . . . DELAY.
