Though we had concerns regarding whether In Re Pilatus Bank, a request by bank counsel to conduct Discovery in the United States, had been dismissed, due to counsel's inability to effective service of process within a specific time set by the Court, it now appears that it remains active.
In an informative Procedural Order, the Court detailed the extensions of time that Pilatus' counsel has received in the past, with opposition consent, ending up with Pilatus opposing Respondent Lawrence Connell's request for additional time to respond. The Court then curtly ordered Pilatus to respond to Connell's motion for extension of time within 48 hours. Is the Court displeased with Pilatus' tactics ? We shall see as the case unfolds.
