Current status shows that ayres is now represented by San Francisco Attorneys Katherine Anne Alfieri and Mark Rendon Vermeulen. They have asked for, and been granted an extension on the due date for the opening brief, and it is now set for October 21, 2014, almost a full year after the original appeal file date.

Status for March 5, 2014 shows: "3/05/2014 Note: Email to Wendy Bauer/FDAP regarding appointment order."  Further, the "Opening Brief filing due date is now rescheduled (for the second time) for 3/20/2014. So far no new documents are posted.

Status for March 22, 2014 shows: Opening Brief filing due date is now rescheduled (for the third time) for 3/24/2014. So far no new documents are posted.

Status for March 26, 2014 shows: Opening Brief filing due date is now rescheduled (for the fourth time) for 4/11/2014. So far, no new documents are posted. The comment "3/05/2014 Note: Email to Wendy Bauer/FDAP regarding appointment order." has been removed from the status page.

Status check on April 2, 2014 shows: Opening Brief filing due date is now rescheduled (for the fifth time) for 5/12/2014. So far, no new documents are posted. The comment "3/05/2014 Note: Email to Wendy Bauer/FDAP regarding appointment order." has been removed from the status page

Status check on May 13, 2014 shows: On 5/13/2014, notification was sent to the appellant that they have failed to file their opening brief in a timely manner. The the next scheduled action is dismissal of the appeal.  I'm assuming that means that it's a 30 day warning for the attorneys to get their act together. (So this is essentially the 6th deadline extension, but possibly the last extension... No idea if they're allowed to re-file if the appeal is dismissed.)

Status check on June 4, 2014 shows: Update to status on briefs shows that ayres was not sent notification until 5/22/2014, resulting in extension of deadline so that 30 days notice is still in place -- The date is now 06/23/2014.

Status check on June 23, 2014 shows: An extension for deadline has been granted (60 days) ayres is warned that if he wishes to retain a lawyer, he must do so quickly, as delay in finding attorney will likely not be an acceptable reason to extend deadline further.

Status check on July 17, 2014 shows: The letter sent to ayres regarding the granted "Opening Brief" deadline extension was returned (presumably unopened) and then resent to ayres on 7/17/2014 -- ayres must be aiming for further extensions. The convict is still listed as "pro per" -- he doesn't yet appear to have a Shyster representing him.

Status check on August 14, 2014 shows: Katherine Alfieri and Mark. R. Vermeulen have been retained to represent appellant, Appellant's opening brief. Requested for 10/21/2014 By 60 Day(s) Notice of appearance of counsel for appellant and request for extension of time; declaration of counsel.

Status check on October 20, 2014 shows: Attorneys have requested copies of missing documentation, to be provided from Superior Court to Appeals court and from Appeals Court to ayres' attorneys. Included in requested documents are reports from asshat Stanford Dr. Simon Tan. Missing records are due to ayres' attorneys by mid November, and then opening brief is due about a month after that. The Appeals court claims that it will be difficult for ayres to get another extension, but that's obviously not true, given all of the other times they've made that claim. With any luck, the gears of "justice" will continue to falter until after ayres' release.

Status check on January 26, 2015 shows: No new information. Due date for "Opening Brief" is now set to February 18, 2015.

Status check on February 10, 2015 shows: A new extension for Opening Brief has been granted. Due date is now April 20, 2015.

Note on Docket says:
"Appellant's opening brief. Due on 04/20/2015 By 61 Day(s)  No further extensions of time shall be granted."

Status check on April 17, 2015 shows: A new extension for Opening Brief has been "granted in light of counsel's affirmative representations that the attorneys working on the case are waiting for an additional 42 reporter's transcripts from the trial court and that they continue to work on the appeal, as well as on counsel's implied representation that the work they are undertaking is necessary and that they are asking for no more time than is necessary."

Status check on June 17, 2015 shows: A new 60 day extension (the 13th extension so far, if you're counting) for Opening Brief has been requested by plaintiff's shysters, and granted by the court. No explanation given. The new due date for the first volley of paperwork is almost 2 years from the original appeal filing date.

Due date is now August 18, 2015.
