There's been new activity since my last missive about the Crytek v CIG debacle.
And it's hilarious AF
Recall that the judge had already DENIED all the primary CIG dismissal motions back in Aug 2018.
See items 3 & 4
But that's not even the half of it - and CIG knows this quite well.
You can't make this shit up with a straight face.
There are LOTS of reasons for this.
And the deadlines (which the judge continues to uphold) are coming up fast.
I'm guessing the judge has seen all these tactics before; but the Crytek opposition filing is particularly on point.
First, I need more coffee. brb
It gets worse in a hurry....
Farking hell! I'm laughing so hard right now.
1. CIG wins ruling
This will force Crytek to either post a bond (determined by the judge, not the CIG filing) or enter into settlement talks, and from a MUCH weaker position.
At no detriment to CIG other than them allowing even more incredible and damning arguments into the case record; most of which are likely to be bolstered by whatever comes out of the discovery they've taken steps to avoid thus far.
Even if it was $2M bond, from what I know, it's not something the Yerli bros will blink at. Aside from the fact they stand to gain a lot more - and those legal costs - if they prevail.
Plus, even for a foreign corp, they can find a co to secure the bond
On p11, they point out that the more expensive firm, Skadden, which CIG used as the basis for their claim to an inflated bond, is now moot. Basically: "hey judge, look we're even cheaper!" <---- lol!!
