Max Stein, litigation team leader at Boodell & Domanskis, LLC, shares his professional expertise as a panelist in the latest webinar “Dispositive Motions” in the “Newbie Litigator School” series presented by Financial Poise on November 18, 2020.
Lawyers often tell their clients that while they must prepare as if every case will go to trial, more than 90% of cases are resolved before trial. If a settlement is not reached, the resolution typically comes through the court ruling on a dispositive motion. This episode begins with a look at motions to dismiss, with focus on the still-developing Twombly-Iqbal standard, and how that standard is put into practice. Next, the discussion includes everything from making a summary judgment record to brief writing, to making a cross-motion for summary judgment. This webinar shines a light on what happens to the great percentage of cases that don’t make it to trial.
