The attorneys for both sides recently told a San Diego judge a lot of litigation remains.
San Diego Superior Court Judge Eddie C. Sturgeon jokingly boasted at one point during a series of hearings last Friday that even though some Los Angeles courts were setting trials as far out as 2021, he was only scheduling for 2020.
Then the attorneys in the People of the State of California v. Ashford University case came forward for their case management conference.
A lawyer for Ashford said that since there were roughly 40 more depositions to be completed in the case filed in late 2017, a trial date for April 2021 should be set.
A deputy attorney general suggested even that timeline may be ambitious given some of the litigation issues needing to be ironed out.
