Quote of the Day

Superlegal: "I saw the file copy of our Response to Plantiff's Request for Production that went out the other day, but I didn't see the file copy of the production that was supposed to be attached. Did the documents get attached to the Response?"

Secretary X: "No. No one asked me to or gave me the documents, and I didn't read it."

Well, there you go. Lesson learned. From now on, I have to ask her to READ documents she sends out. (Nevermind that I marked the documents with stickies that said "PRODUCE." I guess she doesn't read stickies either.)


  1. Hah.

    Who would produce documents to go along with a doc prod? In what universe does that make sense?

    Surely the response saying things like "Answer: See documents 00031-00067" would be sufficient without actually producing those thirty-five pages.

    It's basically the same as answering interrogatories with "Answer: See attorney's brain for the answer he doesn't intend to put into words. Also, objection because we don't like you. Also, screw you" (I'm paraphrasing and ridiculing, but that's pretty much the discovery responses recently received for one of my cases)

  2. Who? Secretary X, that's who! I may have to start using stick figures holding blinking neon signs.

    I like that response! So true!
