The next time you’re in a court case and think it is progressing slowly, think again. In the federal court case of Brammer-Hoelter v. Twin Peaks Academy, a motion for summary judgment was filed shortly after the case was filed on October 23, 2000. It was ruled on “Over five years later on March 28, 2006”, according to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals reversing in part that late decision.
No fixed time limits govern how quickly federal judges must rule on motions before them once they have been fully briefed. A six month statute of limitations applies to bringing suit in cases of the type involved in that case, however.
