It’s been three days since then, so I forwarded that same email to Katie again and added this note:

As far as I can tell, I haven’t received a response to the below email. I’m just checking again to see if there has been any update from the external counsel Kelly has asked to help with the case.
It’s now been over ten months since Kelly agreed to help me with this case, and I am feeling very desperate and frustrated.
Anything you can tell me — anything at all — would be a welcome change from the status quo.
Thanks in advance,
I received the following email from her, in response to Monday’s email, about forty-five minutes after sending that:

Mr. Mathis and the consulting attorney have been playing phone tag yesterday and today. I will let you know as soon as they catch up with each other.
Thank you for your continued patience.
