Shortest (Substantive) Hearing? I spent hours preparing a motion and the weekend preparing a reply brief for the judge to come out (well Zoom out), call the case, and say “I’m happy this motion was filed so I can revisit my prior order that I granted by mistake.” Uhhhh, ok. Thanks.

On one of mine recently, for an ex parte motion, the judge’s clerk popped on the line and said, “He’s granting the motion. Do either of you want to be heard?” Nope. And that was it.

My first contested hearing was a discovery dispute that I’d prepared endlessly for. Judge gets on the phone and says she hadn’t fully read the papers, was ordering both sides to meet and confer again, and that if we still had issues we could file another motion. Over in about 5 minutes.

God that is so frustrating.
