Recently, a Federal judge sitting in Florida ordered that the parties’ most recent trivial dispute should be settled with the hand-gesture game of "rock, paper, scissors".
According to the order, counsels for both parties are to meet at a neutral location, each with one paralegal in tow to serve as their party’s witness. If a neutral location cannot be determined then, the attorneys were to meet on the steps of the Federal Court house. “At that time and location, counsel shall engage in one (1) game of rock, paper, scissors,” stated the order. The victor of said competition will awarded the right to choose the location of the 30(b)(6).
After reading the order, I believe the court made a mistake in giving the parties the ability to appeal. Nonetheless, this judge’s order is better reasoned than the last order I received from a federal judge.
