DREW FLEMING, Personal Representative of the ESTATE OF SANDRA A FLEMING, deceased, Petitioner,
MONTANA EIGHTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT, AND THE HONORABLE DIRK M. SANDEFUR, PRESIDING JUDGE, Respondent
Petitioner Drew Fleming, Personal Representative of the Estate of Sandra A. Fleming, (Estate) requests that this Court exercise supervisory control over the Eighth Judicial District Court in relation to Cascade County Cause No. DDV-12-0435. Specifically, the Estate represents that the District Court is proceeding under a mistake of law and causing a gross injustice by allowing Dr. Nicholas Bonfilio, M.D., and Dr. Dante Oriente, M.D. to intervene in the District Court proceedings. We deem it necessary to have a response to the petition. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Respondent, Honorable Dirk M. Sandefur, District Judge, or his designee, shall have 20 days from the date of this Order within which to file a response to Estate's Petition for Writ of Supervisory Control.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Intervenors and Defendant Great Falls Clinic, LLP, shall have 20 days from the date of this Order within which to file a response to the Estate's Petition for Writ of Supervisory Control.
The Clerk of this Court shall provide notice of this Order to all counsel of record, and to the Honorable Dirk M. Sandefur, District Judge, Montana Eighth Judicial District Court, under Cause Number DDV-12-043 5.
