Any updates on reporter Tara Edwards' Fieger-led suit of WXYZ? Was there a settlement?

The jury trial date isn't until February 11, 2020 if it actually goes to trial. I had posted that before but I think it was lost in the outage.

Nothing earth shattering but a couple of court filings from yesterday. Glenda Lewis and former assistant news director Barb Roethler gave depositions on Thursday. Unfortunately, they only filed an excerpt of the transcripts so far. The defense is arguing that the plaintiff is trying to ask about cases unrelated to Edwards and Maddox. There is also an email thread from yesterday with the lawyers from both sides arguing about that. Thomas Davis and Elizabeth Hardy are from the firm representing Scripts/WXYZ and Michael Hanna is from one of the firms representing Tara.

The incredibly long discovery process in this case continues to drag on. The original trial date was February 11, 2020 and now the trial date is TBD in a new scheduling order filed today:

Not sure if it is somehow related to the Reverend Rideout situation from 2017 from prior to the lawsuit being filed. I don't know how he would help Tara's side in relation to that which might be the whole point of your question.

What a very ignorant reply. Here are some free clues. Tara attended the **press conference** in Fieger's office to announce the lawsuit. Get over it.
