Discovery Dispute Typifies "Wasteful Dance Of Two Scorpions Armed With Word Processors"

The court granted in part defendant's motion to compel further interrogatory responses and documents. "Frankly, this motion and [plaintiff's] response typify the wasteful dance of two scorpions armed with word processors, a dance that tends to cast attorneys in disrepute and makes American patent litigation the slowest and most expensive in the world. You folks ought [to] talk cooperatively between yourselves."

Multilayer Stretch Cling Film Holdings, Inc. v. Berry Plastics Corporation, 2-12-cv-02108 (TNWD December 5, 2013, Order) (Young, J.)
