This morning, Metro filed a motion to extend their time to November 14 to file a “responsive pleading” to the AT&T lawsuit. I haven’t looked to see when the original deadline is, but it is probably coming up in the next several business days.
Nothing really unusual about this.
A “responsive pleading” means that Metro might respond to the substance of the allegations in an Answer, or file a Motion to Dismiss the AT&T lawsuit.
AT&T is not opposing the request for an extension of time.
(Because I am a registered ‘filer’ in the court’s electronic case filing system, I am able to sign up to get email notice whenever a document is filed in this case. I got this document from the court’s filing system, not from either of the parties.)
