Here come the rental trucks.
In a major patent or copyright infringement case, a common tactic is to bury the opposing side in paper–truckloads of documents that only a trademark infringement expert can decipher.
Pretrial discovery is certainly one of the most important means of fact-finding to win a case, and both sides will use legal discovery tools to obtain the necessary evidence to establish the proof of their case. In most litigation, specific documents are requested and the opposing side delivers those specific items. That is when both sides play fair.
But increasingly, a bullying tactic is to not only deliver the documents requested, but mix them with reams upon reams of documents barely relevant to the matter at hand. Boxes upon boxes of irrelevant documents are loaded into trucks and delivered with a smile.
As they know, deciphering the deluge of materials causes the recipient untold hours of sorting time and stress. Unless handled efficiently, getting through the mountains of papers can wipe out a company’s resources and can cause litigation costs to skyrocket. It requires a top-notch team of patent and copyright experts who can quickly and efficiently separate the wheat from the chaff and keep your litigation on track.
