The Defense filed a motion for Summary Judgement (decision with no trial) in July 2005. The responses constitute an excellent survey of the state of the case before the trial. Summary judgement is granted only if it can be demonstrated that there are no "material issues of fact" in dispute that need to be resolved at trial. The judge is required to view all facts and inferences in a manner most favorable to the nonmoving party, in this case the Plaintiffs.
All relevant files are listed below, except for the appendices to the Plaintiffs' brief in opposition to the motion, which are available here.
