  • I do not know, but since no one else commented, I will tell you what I think. In many cases, I would guess it is postponing the inevitable in most situations, and does benefit the system more that the persons involved.

    I would rather see the availability of postponements than the elimination of them. I think in some cases, the extra time may make a difference.

  • Yes, I noticed the lack of comments. Guess we all have lawyers we do not want to offend, but I also don't understand the judge's part in this. Continuance after continuance after.....I mean it has become ridiculous.

    In a patent case we even had the defendant tell us "off the record" that he would string it out until we got so tired and it became so expensive that we would just give up. We didn't and won, but won nothing except to defend out patent.

    I had a lawyer come out of court one day for the opposition grinning and rubbing his hands saying" keep it up, my kids can use the inheritance". It is a wonder there are not more nasty things happening to lawyers.

    Sorry folks, but when your greed takes precedence over doing the right thing, you are no longer the "good guy".
