#LopezvRivera update: Rivera’s amended opening brief now due Jan. 12; Lopez’s response due Jan. 19

According to the court’s original briefing schedule, both parties filed their opening briefs Dec. 29, and then each side was to respond by Jan. 5 to the opponent’s brief.  However, last night the Court of Appeals notified Rivera that he must amend his opening brief (because it lacked the required appendix).  Now he must file the amended brief by Jan. 12.  Then, Lopez must file her response by Jan. 19.
