Just a reminder, even though the the big headline is she filed the suit. It doesn't really become a a lawsuit until Brown is served which report is he hasn't been yet and because it's federal they can take up to 90 days to serve him. here is the rule on that (m) Time Limit for Service. If a defendant is not served within 90 days after the complaint is filed, the court—on motion or on its own after notice to the plaintiff—must dismiss the action without prejudice against that defendant or order that service be made within a specified time. But if the plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, the court must extend the time for service for an appropriate period. This subdivision (m) does not apply to service in a foreign country under Rule 4(f), 4(h)(2), or 4(j)(1), or to service of a notice under Rule 71.1(d)(3)(A). So her filing this could she could sit on it for 89 days hoping for Brown to settle. My guess would be she doesn't want this to go to court and i'd bet filing in federal court had a lot to do with the whole "defendant can be served within 90 days".
