Update: UO Matters’s operatives uncover plot by Beaver fanatics to stack Altman’s jury pool with stealth Oregon State supporters:
3/28/2015: The civil trial is estimated to take 10 days. From the docket, here:
MINUTES of Proceedings: Rule 16 Conference held. Estimated 10 day Jury Trial is set for 5/16/2016 at 09:00AM in Eugene Courtroom 2 before Judge Michael J. McShane. Pretrial Conference is set for 5/10/2016 at 09:00AM in Eugene Courtroom 2 before Judge Michael J. McShane. Discovery is to be completed by 11/20/2015. Expert Disclosures to be completed by 1/15/2016. Dispositive Motions are due by 2/1/2016. Deadline to Amend claims or add parties is set for 9/1/2015.
That’s May 16 2016. Lots of discovery in the meantime. Maybe we’ll finally learn what really happened with Doug Park and Shelly Kerr’s seizure of Jane Doe’s counseling records. And whether Altman really recruited a player that he knew had a year-long suspension, and never asked what it was for. Presumably Altman is lining up Rob Mullens and other NCAA AD’s and coaches to testify that is normal practice in big-time college sports.
No public records yet on how much money UO has spend defending Altman, Park, and Kerr, or on how much if any the Duck athletic department is contributing to Altman’s Miller Nash legal fees.
