Angry Pro Se Letter Wins Extension


Rates Technology, Inc. v. Broadvox Holding Company, LLC

Case Number: 1:13-cv-00152-SAS (Dkt. 133)

Judge Scheindlin had previously ordered Rates to obtain new counsel on or before April 4, 2014, following the withdrawal by counsel. The court extended this deadline until April 28, endorsing its order on a letter from Rates’ president which stated “[Rates] has been unable to obtain new patent and business counsel mostly because [former counsel] has entirely poisoned the waters with its' incomplete, inaccurate filing of its Motion to Withdraw accompanied by its gratuitous letter to your Honor.”
