Fairholme in Another Victory Over Treasury/FHFA (Court of Federal Claims)

Judge Sweeney is not messing around with this litigation……it is going forward..

On 2/26 Sweeney granted $FAIRX discovery in their case vs Treasury/FHFA re: $FNMA

On, on 3/17 defendants filed a motion to stay discovery stating : “…requests that the Court stay its February 26, 2014 order (Order) pending resolution of the dispositive issues in the Government’s motion to dismiss with respect to which there is undisputedly no need for discovery. In the alternative, the United States respectfully asks the Court to reconsider and vacate the Order because discovery prior to resolution of the motion to dismiss is inappropriate.”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess there isn’t much judges dislike more than being told their ruling is “inappropriate” and that the reasoning is “there is undisputedly no need for discovery”. That basically translates to gov’t lawyers telling Judge Sweeney, “you don’t know what your are doing”.

Here is their motion (I’ve marked it up w/notes):
Motion to Stay

On 3/19 here was Sweeney’s response:

For those who can’t see it she said : Denied, get your ass (or something to that effect)  in court 3/21
