William V Aguiar III sues Ashida Kim and Floyd Webb, Part II
I am back from court. Aguiar showed up late, asked for a 90 day continuance as he had contracted a lawyer. The judge said no. Creeden did not show. The cases against Ashida Kim and the Sheppards' were dismissed with prejudice. Aguiar is free to file new paperwork and refile against them with the stipulation that he will be heavily penalized of he cannot prove his case against them.
I am now in the case by myself. Aguiar has a chance to get lawyered up and continue to pursue the case against me but it has been pointed out to him by the court that I am well within my claims of Fair Use. If we move forward with a clear sense of cooperation in a reasonable manner, we can be done with all of this by summer, fall at least.
The film moves forward on no money still...It has been a great day in court. The lawyers all did a great job. I felt really sorry for Mr. Aguiar. He is fortumate he had such an understanding Judge who really believes in affording Pro Se cases benefit of the doubt and allowing him the opportunity to come back better prepared with a lawyer.
I feel good.
