Judge Snow Cuts FAA’s Time to Answer in HALF! – Rojas v. FAA 5

The Honorable G. Murray Snow

The Honorable G. Murray Snow

Judge Snow has issued a scheduling order for Rojas v. FAA 5, filed last week. In that order, Federal Defendants are required to answer the lawsuit in 30 days, instead of the 60 day summons previously issued.It is possible the FAA will seek an extension though. The case was also assigned to the EXPEDITED track, similar to Rojas v. FAA 3 and Rojas v. FAA 4.

The counter for the agency to file a Motion for Summary Judgment is also 6 months from now. It is therefore likely that any records the agency will turn over without resorting to litigation will be turned over by then.
