Do I hear an echo?

Ahem.

A few months ago, I said:

Remember that cancellation proceeding against the STITCH & BITCH CAFE mark? No? That’s all right, because not much has happened. Discovery was scheduled to close on November 6. The parties requested an extension of time from the TTAB (Trademark Trial and Appeal Board) to January 5. The reason given was that the parties were engaged in settlement discussions (which to my cynical self suggests that the parties probably had some form of settlement discussion, the lawyers were hoping that this would go away, but when it didn’t the parties had to actually had to examine each other’s representatives so they needed more time; so far, no notice of a settlement). The extension of time was granted, which was to be expected.

And then there was an amended answer filed, which resulted in a resetting of trial dates; discovery was set to close on March 17, after which it would be time for testimony. Now, I say:

    And here I’ve been relying on Nyquil to get some sleep! Thanks for the non-medicated alternative. If you ever want one in trade, I’d be happy to give you a copy of the textbook my dad wrote for his class – grad school atmospherical physics. He had a student bring a pillow to class once, honest to g-d.
