One interesting point of the story is:

"A request to reopen discovery was denied."

Now Menlo Park residents don't have to worry about being served with frivolous subpoenas for depositions for this 3-ring circus thus saving us from having to take time off work, not to mention expensive attorney fees @ $550/hour.

Thank you Judge Robert Foiles. You are an honorable public servant.
