Brinker Restaurant Corporation, et al. v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum) is even closer to being fully briefed

Real Party in Interest, Adam Hohnbaum, has filed his consolidated answer to amicus curiae briefs.  The docket only shows the filing by Real Party in Interest, but, presumably, the Petitioner's consolidated answer has also been filed.  Depending upon where and how the brief is filed, it can take a day or two for the Court to indicate the filing on the docket.  This is very exciting news.  Now Brinker descends into the cone of silence until oral argument is set.  Seeing no basis for adjustment at this time, The Complex Litigator's Brinker projected Opinion Release Date remains at August 2010.
