Motion for accelerated hearing. Piccarreta wants to expedite the hearing to depose Lamont Barlow.
Motion for Deposition of Witness. Lamont Barlow. This boils down to Matt Smith not wanting Lamont Deposed, and Michael Piccarreta wanting to depose him. It would later be Matt's argument that Piccarreta was exhausting and badgering Mr. Barlow after several "non deposition" interviews, if Lamont suddenly refused to answer a question and stopped cooperating. I can hardly blame Warren's counsel for wanting a deposition so that they can be done with this. That doesn't mean Lamont wouldn't have cooperated.
Request for Omnibus Hearing. Agreed hearing by phone to apparently expedite matters.
Matt Smith's Response to Motion. The "four levels of hearsay" response of Matt Smith. Matt says Lamont has never refused an interview and doesn't want to make it a deposition. I can only see this as potential foot dragging on Matt Smith's part. The force of deposition would make sure that everything happens on a timely basis.
