This morning the judge ruled from the bench that, under Wyoming law, he can't grant our motion to dismiss me as an individual because any interaction I had with Mellon was as Exec. Dir. of TIGHAR.
He did not rule from the bench on our motions to dismiss fraud and negligent misrepresentation.

Unfortunate. What is the next step in the process?

 I guess we're waiting for the judge to consider what he heard on the other motions. I would think if they are dismissed, it does not matter who they were against.
Good luck to TIGHAR on an early end to this. But if it goes forward I have no doubt TIGHAR will prevail. Too many precedents if TIGHAR does not prevail. A gift would now be a contract and the judge would decide that the plane was definitely found based on someone’s unqualified opinion of what is in an image. I don't think that is going to happen.

We wait for the judge's decision on fraud and negligent misrepresentation. If he grants those motions it doesn't matter whether I'm named as an individual or not. The case is over (unless there is an appeal).
If he lets either fraud negligent misrepresentation stand there will be a jury trial in late August.

Pins and needles until then.....
...from all indications, an attempted appeal is likely.

Make no mistake, the ONLY reason Mellon filed this thing in Wyoming was to cause the maximum expenditure of effort and funds to TIGHAR. He is no more a permanent resident of Wyoming than he is of Italy.

At least TIGHAR has managed to show up at every hearing, without fail. Mellon prefers to let others do his fighting for him. I have my own opinion of what that says about his character.

Monty consider his accusations. Would you want to fight that battle?

"TIGHAR hid evidence from me by posting it to youtube" --- I can't even type it with a straight face.

It is getting him his attention and that is all that he wants.
