Contempt ruling issued by Central District of California federal court in response to Toyota's application for OSC

A gate.

Contempt ruling - "Minute order"

1. The ruling finds me in contempt for only 88 docs, a tiny fraction of the total number of docs that Toyota incorrectly claimed were subject to the court's protective orders.
2. The ruling makes no mention of the Barr Powerpoint, so it remains in disputed status.
3. The ruling vacates part of its previous overbroad order that resulted from Toyota's efforts against Barr and me last spring, and the incomplete and misleading information that it gave to the court at that time.
4. The ruling includes orders for remedies, most basically, to provide information about and then to destroy these 88 docs.

What is next? We will see.
