CEF Representative Action: Higgerty Law Update Nov 6, 2019

Higgerty Law is counsel for the Representative Action, and today they updated their Representative Action web page with the following notice:

The second case management meeting happened on October 22, 2019, and we are currently working on finalizing the Scheduling Order.

US Legal describes a scheduling order as:

Scheduling orders are part of case management, which in legal terms refers to the schedule of proceedings involved in a matter.

There are various stages in litigation, such as the filing of a complaint, answers, the discovery process (interrogatories, subpoenae, depostions, etc.), and motions that occur before a trial is held or a decision is rendered.

Each stage of the process has a scheduled timeframe in which it must be filed with the court or completed.

When a complaint is filed and a case is assigned to a judge, the judge will often set forth a schedule for the submission or completion of the relevant pleadings, court appearances, and other matters.
