I am still trying to figure out why counsel for Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad, the owner of defunct Pilatus Bank, has not yet asked the Court to allow their late service of process upon Lawrence Connell, the former Competent Person who was administering the Maltese bank's affairs, in their quest to obtain Discovery from Connell. The order stated that the case was dismissed if their did not serve him shortly before Christmas, and this was not accomplished. Do the lawyers think the Court will overlook this little detail ?
I would think that their first order of business would be to persuade the Court to approve of their late service, and insure that the case remains active. Their stipulation with Connell's attorney, for an extension of time to respond, had a court order attached, to rubber stamp their agreement, but it has not yet been signed by the District Judge. What's wrong with this picture ? Perhaps the Court does not approve.
