On May 22nd, we shared an update on the Equity Civil case currently being dealt with by the 9th District Appellate Court. The Court's decision "affirmed" the lower court's decision to dismiss the case.
At that time, the Plaintiffs had 14 days to file an "En Banc" appeal and/or take their potential appeal directly to the Supreme Court. In checking the Court files, we noticed the Plaintiffs exercised their right to further appeal with the 9th District.
The original appellate hearing and decision were made by a 3 judge panel. An "En Banc" appeal is a request to have an 11 judge panel, from the same Court, consider the merits of the case. At this time, we are waiting on a decision of whether this appeal will also be dismissed or if the "En Banc" hearing will be scheduled. Unfortunately, we do not have a timeframe of when this may happen.
If we receive any further updates by our research or by the International, we will certainly share it immediately.
