Motions Unlikely to be Granted: The Critter Bar Motion


This gem was provided by the actual attorney who wrote it. It’s a grand exercise in telling the story behind the motion – and we’re not talking about the parties. Rather, this motion exposes the skeletons in opposing counsel’s closet.

Regardless of personal skeletons, this motion addresses a real issue with the Big Law discovery process: the bad faith stonewalling of legitimate discovery requests.

According to the attorney, the motion was granted in part and denied in part. You guess which part was denied. However, the attorney did report that the opposing attorney has never since responded to his discovery requests with BS objections. Nor has she ever spoken to him outside the court room again.

Here’s the motion in PDF.
