>The timing is least clear in the California case. In California, we
>seek a court order blocking purchase or use of Diebold TSx Direct
>Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines. On July 18th at 1 p.m.,
>Judge Saundra Armstrong of the U.S. District Court in Oakland will
>hear the voter plaintiffs' motion to remand the case back to state
>court, where we filed it originally. Plaintiffs' attorneys are
>optimistic that the motion will be granted. If the case is returned
>to state court, we will ask the state court to set a hearing within
>about 30 days (about the third week in August) to decide whether to
>ban purchase or use of the Diebold TSx in the November general
>election in California. If the motion to remand is denied, we will
>ask the federal court to advance the date to hear plaintiffs' motion
>for preliminary injunction in federal court from the currently
>scheduled date of September 19th, which we consider uncomfortably
>close to the November election. This would require reassignment of
>the case to a different federal judge, as Judge Armstrong will be on
>vacation for August and early September.
