It all started with Mr. Huber (@Leerzeit) posting a screenshot with a result of his Google search on how long it takes for a court to review legal filings and decide on requests for summary judgment. The result on the screenshot says "one to three months," to which Huber comment ed, "Fake news." Former SEC lawyer Marc Fagel agreed with Huber, confirming that this timeline is incorrect. The discussion was then joined by CryptoLaw founder John Deaton, who wrote that Congress would not have developed the six-month rule if Federal District courts took an average of one to three months for potentially dispositive motions like summary judgment motions. Both Fagel and Deaton concurred that the most likely timeline in this case would be at least six months.
