When is next lawsuit date? I though it was to be in Jan, 2013! Please update. Thanks
I actually think the link is outdated...the case has been referred to a magistrate for further proceedings. There are no hard deadlines that have been set (as far as I know). Probably a few months, if I had to guess.
Jake said: The judge is apparently inclined towards settlement in this case. And his deferment of summary judgement suggests he is prepared to issue a summary judgement should the talks fail. Which side is favored in all of this? That has been a subject of opinion in the big thread. But for the purpose of this update thread the timeline for the next 7 weeks looks like this:
(1) Settlement talks.
(2) If no settlement then summary judgement.
(3) If no summary judgement then it's on to pretrial and trial.
Indications are that 1 or 2 is the likely outcome, but we will see.
The link is the latest, correct information (that we have). They moved the pretrial conf. to March with the settlement/magistrate thing happening now. (which we've heard/read nothing about as of yet.) Unless we've totally misunderstood the magistrate process and why they bumped the pre-trial conf. date to March?
Something doesn't seem right...I haven't time at the moment to check on PACER, but I would like to see the order referring the case to the magistrate. (Just checked Shamil's post in CA Lawsuit thread, and the links to documents all come back with 404 errors). This March pre-trial date seems odd given the magistrate referral. (I also don't think the parties have been ordered to settle. They may have been encouraged to settle, but that is a different matter).
Could that not mean the Judge is aware settlement talks have been going on between XF and IB previously. He's calling "ordering" a conference just to see if anything has been sorted between them already, is the March date necessary still.
If it's doing everything you need and you don't have a pressing need for any "new features/new version", I wouldn't stress too much about it just yet. Believe me, you are not alone in feeling the way you do but I don't think giving it a little while longer, since it "seems" we are close to some finality with the legal issues, is bad advice.Is Xenforo (Kier etc) not allowed to discuss any of the trial? You would think they would give us an update or something - throw us a bone, since so many of us have converted our VB to Xenforo, and no updates have been made by the staff in a very long time - making us wonder if we made a mistake in converting to their software.
Sorry, just feel I made a big mistake that would take mass efforts to revert back - love this software - but would like to go a direction where there is regular update/upgrades
Don't need to flame me, just frustrated like the rest of you. I know it was my decision to convert to XF, and I have to suck it up. Just want a "Hang in there" from the staff, before I do spend 2-3 weeks converting back, and then screw up my google rankings - my site is monetary based so it does affect me bigtime.
Live long and prosper!

Any and everything Kier would say here would be spotlighted, magnified and potentially ripped apart by IB's attorneys, opening up the possibility of using their own words against them. I would imagine KAM's legal defense would advise them to say absolutely nothing. I would think such a tact would be the smartest thing to do.
Long live XF!
