Legal malpractice comes in many forms, but one of the most common forms is the missed deadline. Recently, one poor attorney had the misfortune of missing a deadline on the biggest stage there is — before the US Supreme Court.
One upshot of the error is it demonstrates the collegiality among the Supreme Court bar, those lawyers who regularly practice before the US Supreme Court. According to the article, several colleagues have written briefs on the attorneys’ behalf urging the court to accepted his late-filed document.
It is a shame, but that attitude is hard to find. Instead, the trend is the opposite. Parties too often rely on technicalities to prevail instead of really being interested in finding justice or the truth of the matter.
