20. The parties agreed to that schedule

 


The House has filed for a preliminary injunction, which is legalese for "I want a really fast decision up front."

Normally a party has 20 days from service of the action to file a response to a complaint. Just before that deadline, the House filed its motion for a preliminary injunction. This judge then issued an order re-setting the deadline to respond the complaint for 14 days from the decision on the preliminary injunction.

Two days later, on August 30, the parties filed a joint proposed scheduling order, to which the parties agreed, and which the court adopted.

In general, no, if the parties agree to a schedule, the judge isn't going to come up with some other schedule, and, as far as federal litigation goes, this is moving like shit through a goose.
