Civil Trial Date - SET!

I went to the district clerk's office last Monday to see what progress was going on with the civil trial since the last hearing in December where Matt's attorney finagled a few more months in continuances. (MUCH to the Judge's great irritation!) The Judge was adamant that Matt's attorney's work with the Dulin's attorneys POST HASTE on scheduling this court date. After almost 3 months of Matt's attorney not responding on agreeable court dates, the Judge just set it himself.

I called the 19th District Court office and spoke with Joy. She told me that the civil trial was set to begin on September 29th. She also indicated that this case had a "PRIORITY RATING." When I asked her what that meant she said that this case was taking priority over other ones and the date was set in stone....not to be wiggled out of once again by one of Matt's long line of court-avoiding lawyers.

So at least one form of justice will commence this September. I wonder if the criminal justice will come even before September? It's possible.

I am not sure if it will be before the civil trial or not but it will be in 2009. Trust me.

I have been following this case from the beginning and
I am comforted in knowing that God is the ultimate Judge. Daniel 7:9-10 refers to God as "The Ancient of Days". Simply put, everyone longs for justice to be served and our God is all knowing and all wise.
Therefore, we can rest in the justice of the "Ancient of Days". For He was on the bench the moment the wrong was committed and he will be sitting on the bench the day of sentencing. For no one will succeed in missing HIS court date.
God Bless,
Washington State

I agree Washing State. Here is a verse I would like to add:

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

—Romans 12:12

We continue to pray for the Dulins. Don't give up on hope or saving your granddaughters.

If MB could look into a crystal ball and see how this is all going to turn out, he would tremble and go pale. He would surely save himself the trouble and go straight to the police right now and confess what he has done.

That, of course, would be the honest and right thing to do. We all know that's not what this man is about, so we'll patiently wait as the wheels of justice turn faster and faster now, and his time runs out.

God is good, and there WILL be justice for Kari.
