Ask any litigator: What's the most annoying part of the case? Discovery. And more specifically, depositions.
"Objection. Objection. Asked and answered. Objection. I need to speak with [coach] my client."
You get the point. It sucks. And we're not the only ones who have noticed. A federal judge, fed up with the "state of discovery in modern federal civil litigation," issued a sua sponte sanctions order against a BigLaw partner after reviewing the depositions in the case. Even better? The creative sanction wasn't cash. (H/T to Above the Law.)
