In response to a movement filed in the present day by the households’ attorneys, Remington’s attorneys “served a subpoena on the Newton Public College District in search of: ‘Any and all instructional information in your possession together with however not restricted to, utility and admission paperwork, attendance information, transcripts, report playing cards, disciplinary information, correspondence and any and all different instructional info and information pertaining to’ every of the 5 first-graders whose Estates are plaintiffs on this case,” in mid-July. The movement filed on Tuesday was one the plaintiffs hope will finish any additional frivolous and painful subpoenas by the protection.
What’s vital to grasp right here is that that is merely a transfer to clog up the equipment. It’s a struggle of attrition on the a part of Remington and their authorized protection. They might be in chapter courtroom however they’ve tons extra assets than the plaintiffs do. Asking for these information is merely forcing assets and time to be devoted to nothing. The one factor it might produce is a delay within the courtroom proceedings. To completely think about how low that is, think about what and why these “information” could possibly be of use to Remington’s protection on this case. Even when every considered one of these information included proof of elementary college kids saying that they hope to some day be brutally murdered by an individual who ought to by no means have had entry to a gun simply in order that their dad and mom may sue a gun producer, and even when these kids’s elementary college information confirmed that they hoped that their households would sue Remington Arms, it will have zero—I repeat, ZERO—bearing on this case.
And let’s be crystal clear on this level: Motherboard reported on the Sandy Hook Dad and mom v. Remington Arms case at the start of July when a discovery request by attorneys from the dad and mom was met with actually loathsome lawyer bullshit. Asking for doubtlessly related company emails from the weapons producer, the dad and mom obtained “tens of 1000’s of random cartoons, movies, memes, and emojis.”
In response to the attorneys who filed the criticism, the 46,000 paperwork contained no metadata or straightforward methodology of sorting or attribution. There have been a number of 1000’s emails buried among the many gender reveal movies and Minion memes, however far fewer than the attorneys anticipated.
One of many attorneys representing the households, Josh Koskoff, instructed Motherboard relating to this grotesque request by Remington for these college paperwork: “The information can’t presumably excuse Remington’s egregious advertising and marketing conduct, or be of any help in estimating the catastrophic damages on this case. The one related a part of their attendance information is that they have been at their desks on December 14, 2012.”
There might not be a hell, but when there may be, I promise you there’s a particular place there for individuals who consider that there are any ends that justify these means.
