Report: Moore-Bertuzzi lawsuit removed from court docket

Aug 29, 2014, 2:15 PM EDT

We still haven’t heard from Steve Moore’s camp on an agreement reached in the Moore-Todd Bertuzzi lawsuit, but further signs the two sides are close were reported by TSN’s Rick Westhead Thursday.

According to Westhead, the two sides are currently negotiating the terms of a confidentiality agreement. In his report, Westhead says even if there were issues with coming to terms on a confidentiality agreement, an arbitrator would step in.

The trial was scheduled to be heard in Ontario Superior Court beginning Sept. 8.

    I don’t know a lot about the recent developments here. Are they already agreed on the settlement but just can’t decide on the details about making the settlement public? Seems like a weird amount of time between the last time I read they’re working on a “confidentiality agreement” and this time that they’re still working on it.

      then again, I guess Moore’s brother could have thrown a wrench into those gears.

      Don’t forget the reports that Moore’s lawyer is quite the media whore.

      There’s also the typical lawyer BS, possibly from both sides, arguing over tiny adjustments to the language of some passage or another when it’s essentially completely agreed upon.

    Lawyer time is different than real time. It goes 10 times slower than the clock you and I use.
