Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.                                 ~ General Omar N. Bradley

Dear Members,

I trust you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Just a short message to keep you informed in relation to the Deese v. RALSC, et al. lawsuit.

On November 25, 2019, the court heard Mr. Deese’s motion for summary judgment. A motion for summary judgment is a request by one party, in this case, Mr. Deese, for the court to rule that the other party does not have a case because there are no facts in dispute, and the court could only rule in favor of the party making the motion. HOWEVER, on November 29, 2019, the Court denied Mr. Deese’s motion for summary judgment. Copy of the Court’s Order is attached for your ease of reference.

RALSC et al . have also filed a motion for summary judgment, copy of which we have previously posted on the website. It is scheduled for hearing on December 20, 2019. Upon receipt of the court’s order, you will be apprised.

If the court rules in favor of RALSC et al. ’s motion for summary judgment, the case is over, and RALSC et al. would have prevailed. If the court denies the motion, then the parties will undertake those steps that normally precede preparation for trial.
