Well, it's possible they meant the flashback sequences.
This is why I personally consider on-screen material as top tier evidence and support for information. Too many cooks in the kitchen is why we get contradicting claims regarding timeline placement. I think too many people assume that all of these writers and creators are 100% on the same page regarding continuity, timelines, etc, when it's not like that at all. The MCU and Star Wars seem to be exceptions to this rule, at least so far. So while I'll always consider what a writer or director has to say, if they aren't 100% black and white/positive with their answer, I'm not going to take it all that seriously. A lot of times, it's just guesswork on their part. Their focus is to tell a story, not nit-pick the small details of continuity and timelines like we all do.

Started Death of Superman last night. Havent finished it yet, but noticed that the League has a board meeting discussing their end of fiscal year (typically the last day of either March, June, September or December) and Batman mentions that Damian is currently in boarding school. I think this narrows down the month to be either March or September as school would be out in both late June and December. Leaning more towards September since it makes more sense with our current placement of the league forming in November.

Most of it's thanks to Mattie.

Very much a definite order of the series, based on all dates and story points. It's doing pretty well, thanks to you guys.

"It's been six months since doomsday, and the world is still shaken by the death of Kal El of Krypton" I'm not sure, but is it possible that it's the six month anniversary of the death of Superman, or is it just what she says?

Not sure if it's important but the 2016 date for TT-TJC states "the treasury bond heavy quarter of 2016". So at least a quarter through that year.
Was there any particular reason why JL: Dark is placed after Judas Contract and Hell To Pay? It was produced before both.
It's placed after Hell to Pay because of the comic, and hell to pay and it's comic were made post-Judas Contract. 2 > 1.

I would say it's best to just treat it as an approximation. Just finished the movie and she mentions it's been six months at both the start and the finish despite it taking place over multiple days.

The more I think about it, Judas Contract could technically take place after Hell To Pay and JLD if we needed it to. Which then could make it possible to move those two directly after JL vs TT in 2015 if need be.
