Interesting article on Filing Motion To Compel

Recommended Posts


Good article. Thanks. We successfully argued against a JDB's motion to compel and prevailed (in part) on our motion to compel them to produce. The judge wisely ignored all most everything requested in both motions, but got right to the essential element and ordered the JDB to produce it. They couldn't. This paragraph from your linked article was so true in our case:


"A motion to compel, for example, can create an impression with the judge that the opposing party is sloppy or unethical. A motion to compel can influence the judge’s view of the facts in advance of a motion for summary judgment. A motion to compel can keep an opposing party off balance and distracted, and force it to deplete its resources defending the motion. The possibilities for tactically using motions to compel to achieve other litigation objectives really are limitless depending on the type of case."
