Federal Judge Orders ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ Match To Resolve Discovery Dispute

I like a judge who cuts through the nonsense.  This June 6 discovery order by U.S. District Court Judge Gregory A. Presnell, of the Middle District of Florida, requires the parties to engage in a ‘rock, paper, scissors’ match to settle a dispute about the site of a FRCP 30(b)(6) deposition. 

Add this to the list of creative solutions for legal disputes, along with the cage matches advocated by Major John.

UPDATE: Here’s a pretty good CNN story about the order, with a brief interview of one of the attorneys.

  1. God bless the Judge for this – maybe the shame involved will help these two sides get their acts together. Maybe.

    There is an international RPS tournament held annually in Toronto Canada. Maybe attorneys can obtain CLE credit for attending and competing for the title.

  3. That would certainly be more entertaining and arguably more useful than most CLEs.
