I've seen this, and will try to do a brief livetweet in the next half hour or so.

to:dr Volney is very, very done with this nonsense. Big done. Totally. No evens to can. Those things to give? The field is barren. Laid waste even. D O N E.
Right. Let's take a look at this. Might as well start with the prayer for relief, which is basically, translated from the original Lawyer, "Judge, let's get this done with already."
Moving to the start, what we see is the tone for this entire filing. It's - I think @KathrynTewson nailed it - kind of parental in a way. Except it's the parent with the room of oversugared preschoolers just holding it together kind of parental.
@KathrynTewson The footnote, by the way, points out that you get less than 17 days to respond to a motion for summary judgment, which is (let's be honest) a much more serious thing to deal with.
@KathrynTewson Points two and three are also clearly stated and very true. No doubt.
@KathrynTewson Point 4 is the first to contain a really substantive point, and the first that gives a compelling reason to deny the motion - it would waste time and (consequently) money.

That said, if Vic is going to be picking up the tab, the prejudice to the defense is minimized.
@KathrynTewson The fifth and final point is:
(1) True
(2) Yet, in reality, not so true because the vast majority of those lawyers are clowns;
(3) one of the most beautifully, professionally-phrased cheap shots you're likely to see.
@KathrynTewson If this had been filed even as late as midday Monday, I'd still have said that the motion to continue would probably be granted - and I suspect I'm not alone in that.
@KathrynTewson But it's Wednesday, and the motion to continue is apparently being taken up at the hearing on the motion they want to continue, so it's pretty clear that it's probably not being granted.
@KathrynTewson Damnit, Nick,

I made a bad call on a minor procedural point again.
