The Trial Practice of Taylor Swift

If you've been following the news, you've likely heard about litigation surrounding Taylor Swift, who was being sued for defamation by a radio DJ. Swift alleged that this DJ had grabbed her, under the skirt, in 2013. Not wanting to make a national news story of the situation, Swift had reported the grab to her "people", who notified the DJ's radio station employers, who then fired the DJ. This DJ then alleged that Swift made up allegations that he had grabbed her inappropriately, which resulted in him getting fired and becoming unable to find any employment now. He sued her in federal court for this.

What A Mouthful. Trial Practice

Words are tricky. They can get you in trouble or out of trouble. They can save your life or get you killed. They can save your relationship or end it. They can win your case or lose it. I think you get the idea. Words are everything in our profession. Words are the art of trial practice. If you asked ten attorneys what one word within a Judge's Order or Opinion meant, you might get ten different opinions, depending on their frame of reference.

Trial Practice: Motion to Withdraw Admissions

There is substance and there is process. Both are vital to knowing the game board and winning the game. In trial practice, you've got to know the intricacies of discovery. Tonight, our Marietta divorce attorney, Alyssa Blanchard, takes us to an infrequently used but vital tool in the litigation process.

Trial Practice: Pre-trial Orders are beautiful things.

A little while ago, I was trying a free wheeling case which was stretching on into days. Opposing Counsel's witnesses and documents seemed as loose as as an earthworm on valium. He barely knew who he was going to call as a witness anymore than I did. For trial practice, it was nearly anarchy. It was very close to pandemonium in the court room.

Trial Practice: Framing a Guilty Man

What is it about many of our species that we cannot have it good enough?  We have to try to improve our situation, even when our situation is pretty good. Rather than let the facts fall as they do, we have to make our stories better than the reality.  We embellish. We enlarge our tale.  We help reality out a little bit (or sometimes, a lot). even in trial practice, we have to frame the guilty man.
