The civil disentitlement doctrine is a drastic measure that strips away the right to pursue an appeal. Although it’s reserved for the most egregious of misbehavior, respondents are invoking the doctrine more than ever. But are courts taking the bait? This presentation shares the findings of a quantitative analysis of motions to dismiss under the disentitlement doctrine, and offers insight into the most effective arguments for—and against—a motion to dismiss an appeal under the doctrine.
Speakers: Sancho Accorsi and Benjamin Shatz
