We have an experienced trial lawyer who is telling the federal judge overseeing the civil case that he has assigned people to look for what was never turned over as demanded by the courts. He has to hire someone to advise him how to handle complicated(?)and vast amounts of discovery material. Should he be in the position he is in? He goes on to use someone else's stature to minimize his and his staff's deplorable incompetence. If the situation were not so serious and so damm costly to citizens paying the bill, it would be a comedy not the tragedy it has become. Civil Servants-expecting to be paid for not doing what is expected of them...We expect our attorneys will defend their clients as they are charged to do, but we do not expect them to totally ignore their legal duty as officers of the court.
