Heading to Trial
Unless the party who is suing my client has a miraculous change of heart and drops her case, it looks like I'm going to have my first court trial in about 2 weeks. So blogging will be lighter than normal (heh).
I read somewhere (probably from PS Bradley) that there basically two reasons why a civil lawsuit makes it to trial: one side either doesn't know the facts of the case or they have miscalculated. The latter seems to be the situation in the matter I'm involved in to the extent that opposing counsel just doesn't seem to know what the applicable law is.
