Lewis Tein Files Motion to Compel!

Lewis Tein has filed a motion to compel in the federal RICO case brought by the Miccosukee Tribe.

In a no-holds bar filing, the law firm makes a strong case:
If there is a single piece of paper -- generated by or in the possession of the Tribe prior to preparing the instant Complaint – that supports the Tribe’s outrageous accusations against Lewis Tein, the Tribe has yet to produce it. If one exists, Lewis Tein is entitled to it. If it is privileged, the Tribe must log it. And if no such documents exist, the Tribe should say so, instead of hiding behind objections and evasive language.
If it does not fit....oops, wrong locution.

Actually, I like the simple, declarative sentence structure.

(BTW, the new Mag on the case is Judge Torres.)

Torres and Tein

Horribly written motion. Who can get through that?

My friend worked for Tein and ultimately left the firm for something better. Let's hope they make it through the motion. I have a marketing company in miami and I was considering using Tein for some legal needs but passed once my contact left. Good post... I'm not an attorney but I keep finding myself reading your blog.

Yup, couldn't have been more simply written. Should be a lesson to you guys and gals who think that more is better. The civil guys may make a fortune but listening to them drone on in court hurts my ears.

I was lost after the first page. Something about Indians and lawyers fighting. I always thought the Indians fought with the cowboys?

Motion should be stricken for exceeding page limit.

Overarching?

Did Mike Tein read this before it was filed? If one of his associates had written this, the associate would be out of a job (at least any of the former ones). Maybe his standards have declined.

Well, it's good that it's Judge Torres. If it were certain of the other magistrate judges, the motion would granted or denied in an endorsed order (which, at least to me, would be ironic since the motion is 30 pages).

Calli and Tein may be overcompensating for something by filing large briefs....

Lawyers site said...

One never knows when it will be necessary to protect rights. That is why I created a directory of good US lawyers who always can help. While reading your articles I came to conclusion that you are a legal professional and can recommend best attorneys to this directory. You can submit lawyers to the section of Florida civil attorneys or other appropriate sections. There is also a possibility for lawyers to publish legal news and articles as well as posting to Attorney Blog. I think, it can be useful to many of your friends who provide legal services.

It sounds like one of the "former ones" over estimates the value of his or her skill set and suffers from delusions of grandeur. As soon as the going got tough, the 'former ones' showed there true colors and bailed.

I would be hesitant to retain one of these "former ones" to represent me because if the going got tough they may abandon me mid- course. I want someone who understands the concept of hard work and loyalty to represent me.
