THREAD: Here’s a minor update in the 643 v. Facebook legal case, which @oliviasolon and I covered back in April. (nbcnews.com/tech/social-me…)

It’s worth noting that this case has been pending in San Mateo Co. Superior Court for over 4 years now, one of the longest in the county.
@oliviasolon Over a month ago, Judge Swope ordered 643’s CEO Ted Kramer to find new counsel for his company.

Kramer finally has: two bankruptcy lawyers who have offices in SF and Modesto.



@oliviasolon It’s worth noting that Judge Swope has a conference management conference hearing currently scheduled for Friday July 19 at 2pm PT, which I will be unable to attend.

643’s new lawyers immediately attempted to get Judge Swope taken off the case.

@oliviasolon Facebook objected, noting that “Six4Three and its lawyers were caught orchestrating one of the largest and most damaging violation of a protective order in history.”

@oliviasolon 643 new lawyers respond, insisting Judge Swope should be removed.

@oliviasolon Birnbaum & Godkin (old 643 lawyers) jump in to say that Facebook got some things wrong:

@oliviasolon Judge Swope says he’s staying:

@oliviasolon New 643 lawyers ask that the case management conference (currently scheduled for July 19), be postponed for 3 months

@oliviasolon New 643 lawyers are insisting that Judge Swope be removed, and object to his overseeing of the trial and any hearings, including the July 19 hearing.

@oliviasolon Facebook lawyers: “This case can and should finally move forward.”

Facebook also said that it wants to (finally) be able to search Kramer and Scaramellino’s imaged devices/accounts for numerous terms, including the names of these fine people:
