There is no way to tell you how likely it is to be granted without knowing the specifics of your case.

Ok. How soon after discovery can a summary judgment filed?

Please see Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 56 (b). (b) Time to File a Motion. Unless a different time is set by local rule or the court orders otherwise, a party may file a motion for summary judgment at any time until 30 days after the close of all discovery.
