How Not to Represent a Client

When the judge gives you specific instructions on what to address in your brief, for Pete’s sake, address those things in your brief.

At the hearing, Plaintiff’s counsel admitted his failure to comply with the second requirement of the Court’s order, although this took some time since counsel had not thought it necessary to bring a copy of his own Supplemental Memorandum with him to Court and had to consult the Court’s own copy of his document.

Counsel did not admit his failure to comply with the first requirement of the Court’s order. Inexplicably, he was not struck by lightning during the course of his denial. His failure to comply is manifest.

And for the love of God, come to the hearing prepared to discuss your brief.
