Federici v Pignotti et al: Case Dismissed

As a defendant in this case, I have an update. Yesterday, March 4, 2011, our Motion to Dismiss was heard in Eastern District Court of Alexandria, Judge Gerald Bruce Lee presiding and the motion to dismiss was granted for all defendants. The case is now dismissed. I will send relevant documents on the dismissal when they become available.

When I obtain the documents, may I post them by submitting a new entry in this database? How is this done?

Thanks and I really appreciate your website.
