Gallop and her lawyers have 30 days to show cause why they should not pay $15,000 in sanctions for pursuing frivolous appeal.
(See document #91 attached below)
Gallop requested and was granted an extension on the show cause order, and now has until July 11, 2011 on that.
Gallop's petition for rehearing filed on June 13, 2011. (See document #108 attached below)
Oh my, one of Gallop's lawyers, William Veale has filed a motion on June 16, 2011 that I think is going to get him in trouble.
(See document 110 attached below)
Not surprisingly, the appellate court has denied the motion to recuse the judicial panel and has denied the motion
for rehearing. In addition, the court has smacked down William Veale again and he has to now show cause why he
personally shouldn't have to pay further sanctions for filing these additional motions. (See document 115 attached
below, filed July 7, 2011)
July 11, 2001, Veale et al filed a whopping 370 pages of arrant nonsense in response to the first order to show cause.
See documents 118, 119, 120, 121, and 122 below. (In addition to the responding argument and these 'affirmations' by
Veale, Ndanusa, Cunningham, and Gallop, they filed a 238 page 'appendix' that I'm not going to bother uploading as
it's too large and it's mostly just copying and pasting the same old crap from elsewhere. Perhaps I'll do a summary at
some point for the sake of completeness, but don't count on it...)
The defendants filed their submissions on the show cause order by way of a brief letter on July 14, 2011. (See document
July 27, 2011; Gallop's request for rehearing and/or rehearing en banc is denied. (See Document 142 below)
