The new Bullyville lawsuit is scheduled to begin April 7th.
The trial is a "do over" of Rauhauser's $1.3 million dollar sanctions and costs you've been hearing Neal brag about. That $1.3 million is null and void as the judge decided there should be a new trial.
There were several irregularities in the last judgement but the one Judge Crosby signed off on was that McGibney's attorney, Evan Stone, asked for oral arguments and Crosby overlooked that request. In Texas, requests for oral arguments are always supposed to be granted. So...
Below is the subpoena served on Neal Rauhauser ordering him to appear in court in person, or via electronic means, along with requested documents.
This will definitely be popcorn worthy. It's doubtful Neal will show up in person because of outstanding warrants and unpaid child support. But Neal has often mentioned his Google voice number so there's no way he can refuse to appear via electronic means.
As for the documents requested. Of interest is "correspondence with any third party regarding legal costs/fees incurred by you in conjunction with this case; any written statements by you regarding the characterization of indebtedness to Hanszen Laporte in conjunction with this case".
There is some question as to whether Neal was an actual paying client as he and his attorney, Jeffrey Dorrell, are claiming now, or if Neal was a contingency client as they originally stated at the beginning of the trial.
Neal talks a lot on the internet so I'm wondering if he'll have the nerve to bring all the requested documents or if he'll opt for contempt of court and not comply with the requests to avoid perjuring himself and looking the fool.
I look forward to April.
