ATTORNEY TO BE NOTICED

They are listed as defense for all defendants. Also, a motion to Intervene has been filed by the Plaintiffs. Opposition to that motion has been filed by Defendants. Description of Motion to Intervene: http://www.techlawjournal.com/glossary/legal/intervene.htm

Also, Defendants have filed a Motion to Dismiss the case. That's going to be big. Hearing on Dismissal set for August 6 at 8:30am at the Reagan Courthouse in Santa Ana CA.

Points of defendant's motion to dismiss:
-Plaintiffs do not state a plausible claim for relief
-Plaintiffs do not allege the fraud with enough particularity - (Rule 9b) Fraud or Mistake; Conditions of Mind. In alleging fraud or mistake, a party must state with particularity the circumstances constituting fraud or mistake. Malice, intent, knowledge, and other conditions of a person's mind may be alleged generally.
-Suit should be dismissed because it's an internal party issue
- Plaintiffs are not entitled to be "unbound" and ignore results of primary elections

on the Motion to Dismiss:

It's a pretty scathing Motion and the lawyers that wrote it clearly don't think too highly of Mr. Gilbert and his Plaintiffs. Many veiled insults throughout the motion. Defendant's attorneys are trying to get it dismissed based on the complaint itself not being sufficient according to Fed Rules of Civil Procedure, not on any factual basis. Unfortunately, I think they may be right. The complaint is very vague in parts and federal complaints require a specificity as to "who, what, when, where, why, how", not just broad conclusary statements. We shall see.
