Brevard Circuit Court Judge Moxley has signed the plaintiff’s (Morelock) motion for speedy trial in the auto negligence suit against William D. Lane and DaimlerChrysler Corporation. The motion for speedy trial was filed on November 7, 2006 by Sam Cacciatore, attorney for the Plaintiff, Dolores J. Morelock who is suing for the wrongful death of her son, Gerald Morelock.
Jeffrey Vernis, attorney for the defendant, Billy Lane, opposed the motion saying it was premature, insufficient on its face, and without substantive support. Vernis also said the motion should not have been filed without the case being scheduled for trial or not being on the trial docket, pointing out twice that the court must consider health as well as age of the plaintff in determining the motion.
Judge Moxley denied the response filed by Jeffrey Vernis on behalf of Billy Lane and granted the motion for speedy trial to the Plaintiff, Dolores Morelock. The motion states: The court is to give preference in this cause in setting matters on the court’s docket.
This case is currently set for Calendar Call: Hearing on February 7, 2007 at 1:30 pm to be heard at the Titusville Historic Courthouse in Titusville, Florida
