[LIVE] Cooper Vs Prenda – Signature Special!

I know I’ve been quiet, but there’s been a lot of work going on. Enough about me though, on with the liveblog.

Today’s hearing is in AF Holdings V Does, and takes place in lovely Minneapolis. Judge Franklin Noel has called the hearing to deal with evidentiary matters, in Courtroom 9W, U.S. Courthouse, 300 South Fourth Street, Minneapolis, MN on September 30, 2013 at 9:30am. The order is under the liveblog.

And of course, don’t forget to help out on the Prenda Wiki – still a lot of work needs doing there.

The case docket is HERE (will open in a new tab)
