Magistrate Judge Goodman Advises Parties to Follow Rules!

 I've take the liberty of annotating Magistrate Judge Goodman's notice to the parties that he will be enforcing the rules when it comes to discovery:
All parties are advised that [In the Court of the Crimson King] the Court's practice is to follow [Follow You Follow Me] Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(a)(5),  which requires the Court to award attorney's fees to the prevailing party [Party All the Time] on a [ELO's Discovery] motion unless one of the enumerated exceptions is met [You Can't Always Get What You Want]. All parties are further advised that their failure to engage in a reasonable pre-filing conference [Life in the Fast Lane] is grounds for granting or denying the motion by default under Local Rule 7.I(a). [I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues]
Man the judge really digs this stuff!


  1. I wonder why he decided to "strike" the motion, rather than simply denying it (with or without prejudice).

  2. I was listening to ELO Last Train to London when I read the blog. Karma?

  3. Would like to see some hip hop references in that order.
