To All Attorneys,
My client has informed me she has sustained a back injury. At the present time, she is on pain medication and is scheduled to begin physical therapy treatments next week.
Therefore, we will need to postpone my client’s deposition scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on 8/6/13 to another date. Also, we will not be deposing [ROUTE 44 Toyota FORMER employee*] on 8/6/13 at 2:30 p.m.
I will notify the Bar Association that we will not be using the conference room on 8/6/13.
FROM Toyota U.S.A. Albany Attorney...willing to travel from ALBANY for a single deposition, Ca Ching! Ca Ching!:

We will not be deposing [Route 44 Toyota's Former Employee*] on August 6th at 2:30 p.m. because my client would like to be present at [Route 44 Toyota's Former Employee*]' s deposition.
FROM Toyota U.S.A. Albany Attorney who previously agreed to re-schedule the Pre-Trial Conference and was NOTIFIED of NEW date, TOO BUSY TO READ HIS EMAILS:

I am in receipt of your letter regarding the deposition(s) of TMS representatives. You note therein that you will be filing a motion to compel. Before, filing said motion (and TMS’ filing a motion for protection), TMS has asked that I reach out to you to see if the parties can meet and confer and perhaps agree on an amicable resolution to this discovery dispute. Are you available early next week to talk ?
[A SEPARATE LETTER INDICATES TOYOTA U.S.A. WANTS TO LIMIT COURT MOTIONS. WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN FOR A YEAR?]
Also, was the joint motion to continue the Pre-Trial filed and have you heard from the court. The Pre-Trial is set for next Wednesday (8-7).
[TRANSLATION: WE INTEND TO BE UNCOOPERATIVE, BUT WANNA STALL THIS.]
* The FORMER ROUTE 44 TOYOTA EMPLOYEE IS IN SALES, involved in the transaction, capable of testifying about ILLEGAL CREDIT REQUESTS, BUSINESS PRACTICES OF ROUTE 44 TOYOTA and other issues specific to Route 44 Toyota. NOTHING to do with mechanical failure of BRAND NEW TOYOTA, not included in Toyota U.S.A. 'DEFECTIVE PRODUCT' issues.
The LEMON LADY made a decision NOT to jeopardize the safety of others, risk the lives of innocent victims CAUSED by TOYOTA U.S.A. FAILURES and end up like this - SPLAT! because Toyota doesn't care from PAST CONDUCT:
At no time have the DEFENDANTS suggested, hinted at or offered a SETTLEMENT of any kind.
This is why Big Corporations lament the HIGH COST OF LITIGATION!
They have caused it!
