The case of David Rucki suing several people including Dede Evavold continues to go haywire.
When last we left off, Judge Jerome Abrams told all parties to settle their differences in a month or let the court know what issues still remain. His order is below.
Unsurprisingly, the parties did not settle their differences by the due date.
This action is borne of a lawsuit filed by David Rucki for defamation and other things against Dede Evavold and other parties.
Evavold is a homeowner and State Farm handles her homeowner's insurance company.
In a moment of naivete, Evavold thought her insurance company might even insure her when this lawsuit came about and asked for help.
Not only did State Farm- using the law firm of HKM Law Group- refuse to provide representation but their law firm even went so far as to demand that Evavold and her husband, Darren, be deposed in order to prove that State Farm were not required to help their homeowners. The demand for a deposition is below.
You see David Rucki has: a bar fight, a road rage incident, threatening to kill his in-law, stalking his ex-wife, choking her, and repeatedly violating protective orders.
State Farm can see no good reason why Evavold did anything she did so they see no reason to defend their homeowner even though she has faithfully paid her homeowner's insurance just in case such a moment comes up.
So, several months ago, David Rucki sued. Here is part of a Judge Abrams judicial order.
This brings us back to the present. After Judge Abrams order, State Farm did list all the issues outstanding. That is below.

Remarkably, State Farm has more issues with their client, Dede Evavold, than with their opponent David Rucki.
State Farm still wants to depose the Evavold's, State Farm still doesn't want to represent their clients, "

State Farm through their attorneys are asking to push the trial back to May.
Nothing is resolved.
I reached out to Elliott, Judge Abrams, and the four Minnesota court public affairs officers- Lissa Finne, Kyle Christopherson, Alyssa Siems Roberson, and Beau Berentson- but none responded to me.
