Hah Hah Now Rule One Requires You to Cooperate!


Attention arsehole attorneys (unfortunately you usually don't know who you are unless you wear it as a badge of pride, in which case you truly are an arsehole), now the Supreme Court requires you to -- gasp -- cooperate with opposing counsel:
Effective December 1, Rule 1 now provides that the Civil Rules “should be construed, administered, and employed by the court and the parties to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding.”
So don't throw around accusations of misconduct that are merely projections of how you would handle the situation, or seek to delay or game the system because that is what you believe "zealous advocacy" requires. 

Even more shockingly, try to actually think about how to achieve the "just, speeedy, and inexpensive determination of every action" even if you have huge overhead at your Brickell offices, and in general don't be a d#$k.

Is that so hard?

Happy Monday!

  2. GW here. I propose putting educational information in the places where people are hooking up these days, namely online and in apps. But Governor Rick Scott won't allow that to happen because we would be supporting sex or something. And so the fastest growing rate of HIV is right here in Florida, thanks Republicans!
