Nuggets of Wisdom

Professor Early: The rule is, don't be the twit in a discovery battle. Every judge will tell you, there is always a reasonable party and there's always a twit. Don't be the twit.

Professor Rate: Make sure your argument passes the laugh test. If it's hard to make the argument with a straight face, even if you have a great technical case, the court will find a way to make sure you are wrong.

Professor Together: The best rule of ethics is this, "If someone is going to go to jail, let it be the client."
