The more I think about it, the more I think that USADA will file a summary judgment motion, a motion to stay discovery, and a response to Armstrong's injunction motion.dbrower said:The only difference I can see between a 10th or 13th deadline is how much time Armstrong has to run to a higher court should Sparks rule against him on the 10th.
I'm going to assume that USADA will file a motion to dismiss on jurisdiction and ripeness, citing Stephens. I'll also predict a clean win on that motion.
Thus Armstrong's choices will be (a) quit; (b) arbitrate; (c) try to find a higher court willing delay the inevitable.
The two things that would get heard on the scheduled date would be Farm's injunction motion and the motion to stay discovery pending resolution of the summary judgment motion.
The summary judgment motion would then be heard a few weeks later.
There could be a motion to dismiss, but I now think USADA would want to do a summary judgment motion because they could then introduce all the contracts (Armstrong's licenses, forms, consents, etc., and all the docs from USAC and USOC).
