In a few days, the location of the deposition of a witness in the Florida case Avista Management v. Wausau Underwriters will be determined by a game of scissors, paper, rock, to be held at an undisclosed location. Now, of course, we may wonder how it can possibly take over 3 weeks to organise such a game, but that’s lawyers for you (I first saw this on June 10, with the game to be held on June 30. >3 weeks due to time zones and press deadlines).
Apparently the lawyers couldn’t agree to either in the building where both lawyers work (4 floors apart), or in a nearby court reporter’s office.
Matti Leshem, the co-commissioner of the USA Rock Paper Scissors League, expects both lawyers to open with paper.
