Default Will Alexander Seek a Venue Change?

Now that Gregory is the only defendant in the surviving case that was
transferred from California, though stayed for now, will he make a
motion to have the case returned to Judge Patel in San Francisco? There
is no longer any reason for his case to be in Texas.

It will be interesting to see if at some point in the future he decides
to cross-claim against Polgar and bring her back into the action. That
bag of crap he's left holding is going to feel mighty heavy over time.

To those who don't necessarily know the law or how it works(me!), it
seems the opposite would be true - a cross-claim against Polgar would
be easier to initiate and enforce in Texas. Why is there no reason
for the case to be in Texas?

Wasn't the crime committed - identity theft, etc, - committed in
California?

Well in seeking a venue change in front of Patel, she argued that the
case should be in Texas because that's where her computer resides. The
criminal case is properly in the NDCA and it would make sense to
transfer it back to there because there isn't anything else related to
it anymore in Texas. Also, if Alexander can cut a deal with the US
Attorney and the USCF, he might be able to limit his civil liability to
the USCF in return for testimony against Polgar and Truong.

Than again, they could reach that deal in CA and just enter a judgment
in TX.

Ah, say I, the USCF and everyone involved with that mess (except Sam
Sloan who was thrown under the bus) all claims against Susan and Paul
were dismissed.... that is if I read the settlement offer right. So
assuming he does provide said "testimony against Susan and Paul" it
means ZERO, as the USCF can't then turn around and then sue them yet
again. In short said testimony becomes a mere factoid in the annuals
of USCF history. BTW Susan and Paul could claim that said "testimony"
was given up under "duress" on the belief it would now mean nothing.

They've claimed about everything else under the sun, so sure, they
would probably lie about that.

Alexander's testimony could mean a great deal in a criminal proceeding
if Polgar and/or Truong are ever indicted. Any civil deal cut with the
USCF at that point would be between Alexander and the USCF only as the
civil action against Polgar has been settled and mutual general released
exchanged all around.

Duress would be a funny explanation to hear from either Polgar or Truong
at a criminal trial of Alexander. Even if they are not indicted, I
would expect Alexander to subpoena them to testify at his criminal
trial. That would be very interesting--perhaps even worth a trip to San
Francisco.
