Subject: Update on Wood v. ARA case
This is my first post oral argument email intended to provide an update based on what I, as an attorney, can say about the argument held on June 23, 2009 at the US Court of Appeals, 2nd Circuit, in New York City, on the Wood v ARA case.
Basically, each side was alloted about 1 minute more than had been scheduled. The judges asked a number of questions, but basically allowed the three attorneys who spoke to present their arguments without too much interruption.
As of today, the court's docket shows that oral argument took place, as noted below. For reference, I have also included in the docket excerpt the filings that were submitted or ruled on in the days immediately preceding oral argument.
I am also pleased to say that two people attended oral argument and met with Judy Wood and I afterwards. If either of them would like to comment on their impressions of the oral argument, they can feel free to do so; however, neither I nor Dr. Wood can comment much beyond that which has been stated above.
We will await the court's decision and can give no reliable estimate on how long that will take.
