Another week has passed with no decision on the Southern Holdings litigation and settlement money.
Despite saying in court on August 20, 2014, he would issue a ruling within one week, Judge Doyet A. Early remains silent.
The case before Judge Early is an interpleader action asking the court to rule on who has claim to the remaining Southern Holdings litigation and settlement funds and how much should go to each claimant.
The interpleader action was brought by attorney and Lexington Magistrate John Rakowsky who represented seven individual plaintiffs in the original Southern Holdings case. Rakowsky stated he didn’t know who had claims to the remaining litigation and settlement money he held.
