In federal court the plaintiff has to carry a lot of weight in prosecuting their case. Given the requirements imposed by the rules, as well as the tools available to defendants, plaintiffs have to be proactive rather than reactive. In Part II of this series, led by attorney Maria-Vittoria Carminati, you will comb through the FRCP with an eye towards the opportunities and pitfalls for plaintiff’s counsel.
This program includes understanding service of process and waivers, writing a complaint with Rule 12(b) motions to dismiss in mind, being able to effectively litigate discovery issues and subpoenas, as well as getting some familiarity with the peculiarities of going to trial in federal court.
