Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

Are you looking for a timeline of all of the decisions in the case or a timeline of the events that lead to a filing of the case?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
A timeline of all the decisions in the case.
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

I was looking online for the decision(s?) since you haven't indicated that you have a copy.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Oh, sorry.
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

If you have the decisions themselves I *may* be able to help you - but I can't search for them online with any kind of speed.

So what you're sending me are articles about the case - not the actual court decisions. I wouldn't be able to prepare a timeline based on these, as much as I would like to unfortunately.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I just sent you a file
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

That's a copy of the plaintiff's complaint - not the decision.

Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

Is this for high school? College?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
college
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
final ruling
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

This is a decision on a motion to strike - not the final decision of the court. They don't provide you with the decisions??

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, just the name of the case to do the timeline on.
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

I wish I could help you but without the decision there's not much I can do. Do you know if it was a lower court decision or if it went up on appeal?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
McDonald’s Corp., the world’s largest restaurant chain, convinced a U.S. judge that consumers’ claims that its food contributed to childhood obesity were too distinct to be gathered in a single group lawsuit.
“Plaintiffs’ claims will necessitate extensive individualized inquiries,” Judge Donald Pogue in Manhattan said today in a 43-page decision in a lawsuit filed in 2002 by teenagers Ashley Pelman and Jazlen Bradley.

The case is Pelman v. McDonald’s Corp., 02-cv-07821, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
Expert:  DrOlivia-JD-MD replied 10 months ago.

Yes, I know the case - but without a copy of it I have no way of establishing a timeline. Even a copy of the final decision would be better than nothing.... I'm going to "Opt Out" so that maybe somebody else can help you. I can also continue to search for the decision but I don't want to keep your case "Locked" in case someone else can help you.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Okay, please continue to look. I doubt anyone else will pick this one up.
