> So what is taking the judge so long to make a ruling?
>> This is a very complicated case. It has to do with personal causes of
action, HPC causes of action, and it has to do with challenging the PCUSA as an
institution. This is a major lawsuit. It goes way beyond the IHP and
an audit. It goes to the core beliefs and law of the PCUSA.
>> In addition, the court has to contend with a lawyer from one of the
biggest law firms in Houston lying to her. She has to deal with Keezel
lying to her. She has to consider how much of the lawsuit she can rule on
and not violate the separation of church and state provisions of the Texas and
US Constitutions. You have no idea how complex this lawsuit is.
>> The judge knows how complicated this suit is and she knows that it
could go on for as much as ten years and go to the Supreme Court of the US.
She also knows that I have a reputation of not backing off in these cases.
She also knows I have already backed down the State Bar. She knows that I have
no problem going to the appeals court. And so she knows she has to do the
right thing and let the case move forward.
>> After she decides to let it go forward, she has to decide how it will
go forward. She has to decided how to deal with 15 lawyers and 20
defendants. She has to decide if she can break the case up into smaller
cases. She has to decide if she is going to shut down the IHP, which I
think she will. That will cost someone millions of dollars. But she
knows that the project should not have gone forward.
>> This is why she has not made a ruling. She also knows that Reagan
Brown lied to her in February and in June. She knows she is going to have
to sanction him. And I am sure that his firm has contributed to her
campaign and so she may be deciding to recuse herself and let it go to another
judge. And if she does, that is a whole different mess. I doubt any
judge in Harris County wants the case.
> Also, do you know when the judge will make the ruling?
>> She is only limited by how long I wait to go to the appeals court and
force her to make a ruling. I will not let the IHP be finished. If
we do not get a ruling within a few weeks, then I will go to the appeals court.
I want to bankrupt Tom Lord, Walter Ellis and Joe Delgatto and put them in jail
as well. So I will not let this project be finished.
>>By the way, this is another problem, the judge knows that someone is
going to have to answer in federal court for what has been done.
>> In a nutshell, we may get a ruling tomorrow or it may next month.
Only the judge knows.
