Today, the court partially granted ayres' request, in that he won't be required to provide a deposition for civil trial until after the criminal trial is resolved. The court did not allow a stay, and did say that he will have to provide a deposition. Of concern is that it's very likely that ayres' criminal Shyster will probably again attempt to claim "further" mental incapacity for the child molester at the start of the criminal matter, delaying everything further. Criminal defense Shyster McDougall was already making noises about ayres' increasing dementia even while the judge was in the process of proclaiming that he suspected that ayres was faking to avoid prosecution.
I suspect that the upcoming criminal matter will begin with a whimper and a push for another mental examination.
Meanwhile, in another of the civil lawsuits, Defense Shyster Constance Yu has filed statements that the Plaintiff has passed away and there is no deposition from the Plaintiff, and therefore is asking for dismissal and summary judgement in that lawsuit.
The San Mateo County Court is still loath to put its foot down in the prosecution of justice in the matter of the long respected friend of the Court, County, and local politicians.
There is no justice; There is only procedure.

william hamilton ayres was arrested on April 5, 2007 on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys while he was alleging to provide psychiatric care to private patients as well as referrals for evaluation from the juvenile court system in San Mateo County. ayres has been delaying his way through the system free from custody until this latest gambit to skirt prosecution by playing demented for the courts. ayres is currently under the conservatorship of his daughter Barbara Ayres of Sacramento, CA.
ayres has had significant interaction over the years with local politicians on boards like the "Children and Families First Commission," including the DA who was serving when prosecution began Jim Fox and Assemblyman Rich Gordon. In fact, Gordon nominated ayres for a lifetime achievement award for his "Tireless effort to improve the lives of children." ayres has also been vocally supported during his criminal trial by local head-shrinkers like Bart Blinder, Etta Bryant, Mel Blaustein, Harry Coren, Tom Ciesla, Robert Kimmich, Larry Lurie, Maria Lymberis, Richard Shadoan, Captane Thomson, and Harold Wallach.
