Anyone else think that court deadlines are the reason for a lot of stress? A 14 day deadline means basically 7 days to get something drafted and to a client. Wonder if courts should consider this and the stress effect it has on litigants and their counsel.

Seems like the courts could help play a role in reducing the stress!

If I’m plaintiff, I want the shortest deadlines possible because I want to keep up the pressure for settlement and get to trial faster.

True. I guess my point is let’s do away with the 7-14 day deadlines for the sake of lawyers mental health on both sides.

And amen, that is the best way to honor him 🙏🏼!

14 days is too short for anything but really short motions. Judges don’t know or don’t care about the realities of working for a client.

I don’t know that I see that many court imposed deadlines. I get a lot of them from OP in discovery “meet and confer” letters (I.e. they find our written discovery answers “insufficient” and demand supplemental responses in 14 days).

I never understand that deadline. You know it took at least 28+ days to draft the original answers. Why would you expect the “missing link” to appear in 7-14 days?

Agree but also those are unenforceable deadlines really. You’d be fine if you just responded saying you’re still analyzing their position etc?

I’m a midlevel who recently joined a new firm where my group is very busy, so my teams encourage pushing work down to junior associates. Seems great, but the problem is that whenever I give a junior associate a drafting assignment that’s not rote document processing, I have to redraft the entire thing and it takes just as long or longer than if I had done the work myself. I try to ask them to revise when I can, but we often don’t have time for more rounds of that. How can I handle this better?
