My primary concern is where this whole thing came from, Spire and some of his immediate running buddies. And their exaggerated claims in the Calif. B of A thing.
The firm handling N.Y. Filings looks interesting. And legit by the way. How they got caught up with Spire ???? Maybe Spire is just retaining them in the ordinary course of business.
Been in fed actions 8 times the last two years, 3 in NY Overall Plaintiff once and Defendant 6 times.
The Grand Chess Game begins. Dateline :
Bank of America filed a NOTICE OF REMOVAL from the Supreme Court of the State of New York.
This is a Civil move where Respondent may challenge and reset the venue and jurisdiction from a State court to the overlying federal district. A Peremptory Challenge sort of thing.
And, yes Virginia, each and every Respondent / Defendant gets to do this.
So, B of A initiates the Fed filing ???
Also, in the Main Performance Ring :
The fed district offers to start taking in the cash and sends out the price list for paper pushing. Thusly.
In accordance with Rule 73 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and
Local Rule 73.1, the parties are notified that if all parties consent a United
States magistrate judge of this court is available to conduct all proceedings
in this civil action including a (jury or nonjury) trial and to order the entry
of a final judgment. Attached to the Notice is a blank copy of the consent
form that should be filled out, signed and filed electronically only if all
parties wish to consent. The form may also be accessed at the following link:http://www.uscourts.gov/uscourts/FormsAndFees/Forms/AO085.pdf.
You may withhold your consent without adverse substantive
consequences. Do NOT return or file the consent unless all parties have
signed the consent. (Bowens, Priscilla) (Entered: 08/31/2012)
I should start adding up the fees to see how much gets skimmed at this stage of the game.
B of A wants more time to answer.
“Here come de judge . . .here come de judge. Order inna court 'ause here come de judge”
Our first Order for B of A is bought and paid for, Magistrate Judge Robert M. Levy pushing the paper.
08/30 & 31/2012
Aurora Bank steps in from somewhere and Levy sez "Howdy" and gives them more time.
From 09/18 – 09/26 B of A makes manoeuvres
Deutsche Bank AG, Deutsche Bank National Trust Company enter from the European entourage, ask for more time, get it and away they go.
Ocwen Financial Corporation drops in to say Howdy and "get 'em in line for some oh that time".
Plaintiffs shoot back with a Letter against an additional extension of time .
But whose “additional” extension I can't say from the Docket Sheet alone. Oh well. At least w/o PACER account.
