What you need to know about why, when, and how to file a writ petition; tips on how to avoid writ traps (including how to manage those incredibly short time limits); what the various court of appeal orders mean; and the insights of a practitioner who handled thousands of petitions in her nearly-40 years as a writs attorney in the Second District.
This webinar will consist of an overview of offers of compromise (and their associated cost-shifting provisions) available under the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68 and California Code of Civil Procedure section 998. The discussion will include a review of the basic components of each type of offer, the key differences between them, avoidance of potential pitfalls, the importance of timing, and other strategic considerations when making these offers.
The Litigation and Appellate Summits are going virtual this year. The Summit will kick off with a joint session on Friday, October 9 from 9:30am to noon for both Litigation and Appellate Summits attendees.
