Conan Doyle Estate, Ltd.’s “Petition for Certiorari”.
TO: Les Klinger or Scott M.Gilbert, his attorney-
Gentlemen, First, let me compliment you on the DJA Complaint, a beautiful piece of pleading. And the exhibits are a pleasure for any Sherlockian to have in the permanent file.
Second, will you be posting all pleadings as they are filed? If not all pleadings, will you post defendant’s significant pleadings, e.g. answer, dispositive motions (with your responses)?
Third, since defendant is a British equivalent to a corporation is there a way (short of discovery procedures) to determine who the true or beneficial owners are?
Thanks for any attention that you may give to these questions,
Jody Baker aka Insp. Baynes
Shouldn’t there be an answer or response (motion to dismiss, etc.) by now? April 15th seems an appropriately gloomy day.
Curious as to status. Been a while since the last posting.
