Reagor, Dykes say it's too soon for a judgment in civil case with Ford Motor Credit Co.

LUBBOCK -- Counsel for Rick Dykes and Bart Reagor filed a motion Friday to defer a summary judgment in the civil case between Ford Motor Credit Co. and the principals of Reagor-Dykes Auto Group.

The motion suggests that six months into the case, there are still too many unanswered questions for a fair ruling.

Earlier this month, Ford Credit filed a motion in district court for summary judgment - meaning the case would not go through a full trial - citing enough evidence of fraud for a ruling in the creditor’s favor.

The Dykes and Reagor motion states the defendants need proper time for discovery, and that the case is far from over. The court had previously set a Sept. 2019 deadline for summary judgment, and a Jan. 2020 discovery deadline.

The motion questions the relationship between former Reagor-Dykes Chief Financial Officer Shane Smith and Ford Credit Regional Manager Gary Byrd Jr. The two had previously worked together at Ford Credit. The document states the defending counsels plan to obtain personal and professional communications between Smith and Byrd, along with depositions from Smith, Byrd and other Ford Credit employees.
