Philly Federal Judge Bounces Josh Duggar's Motion to Compel

PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—Reality TV star and sister molester Josh Duggar has lost his most recent motions to have Danica Dillon's lawsuit against him for assault be dismissed, and to compel her to present documentation relating to the lawsuit more quickly than the Court had allowed. As AVN reported, Duggar's attorney Jeffrey A. Conrad had filed a motion to dismiss Dillon's lawsuit last week, claiming that her complaint did not contain enough specific information to allow the case to go forward. That motion was dismissed on January 6, and the following day, Conrad filed his client's initial response to the complaint, essentially saying that Duggar had never met Dillion at Philadlephia's Gold Club or anywhere else, and never committed any assault or battery on her. That same day, U.S. District Judge Mark A. Kearney gave Dillon's attorney additional time to file documents relating to both the propriety of the case being litigated in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, as well as documents relating to Dillon's injuries, medical treatment and other expenses incurred from the alleged assaults—but apparently, Conrad couldn't wait that long, and filed a motion to compel plaintiff's initial disclosures the following day. Judge Kearney also denied that motion on that same day. However, earlier today, Judge Kearney signed yet another order, this time requiring the attorneys for both parties to "sign and file a sworn Certification on or before January 19, 2016 specifically identifying their good faith factual basis for venue in this District under 28 U.S.C. § 1391 (b)(2) demonstrating a substantial part of the events giving rise to the claim occurred in this District." That order is apparently a sort of response to Conrad's motion questioning the Eastern District's jurisdiction over the case, and could play a crucial role in the pre-trial conference currently scheduled for January 21.
