I just got an email from the Court saying the Petition denied, I think. It is long and confusing Reading it NOW. Linky!
Help figuring this out, people
Ok, I'm trying to figure this out quickly off the top of my head here. It says the Writ of Supercedes is denied, which is good. This appears to be because Volker filed the Motion For New Trial in the Trial Court. This is good, I figure.
But it also says this:
The Order after Hearing also provides that "[t]he preliminary injunction will be dissolved when the judgment takes effect . . . ." (Exh. 13 at 220.) Ordinarily, an order dissolving an injunction is independently appealable. (Code Civ. Proc., sec. 904.1, subd. (a)(6).) In this case, however, the companion Judgment never took effect, and, hence, the preliminary injunction is not yet dissolved. Rather, it remains in place, subject to future modification by the trial court, as appropriate.
I don't understand if that means Volker can appeal again to get 20 more days after the Judgement takes effect. The preliminary injunction, it says, is not yet dissolved. But it is subject to future modification by the trial court. Judge Miller has made clear her view that it should have dissolved last week. So, I don't know what this means, exactly.
This seems good, but leaves me with more questions about what the timeline is going forward. Any help?
