This weekend is a special one for fans of college sports.
For me, the basketball takes a back seat to the NCAA wrestling championships.
In Iowa, wrestling is king.
The attorney represented the plaintiff in a civil action.
A few days before the scheduled deposition of his client, he realized that he had not served discovery requests and, as a result, "embarked on a course of dishonest conduct that he will regret for the remainder of his legal career. "
The deception was uncovered when opposing counsel checked document metadata.
The coverup -- which involved a series of elaborate and persistent falsehoods --was far worse than the mistake with respect to the initial failure to serve discovery requests. (Mike Frisch)
