Summary Judgment practice allows a party to obtain a swift decision on a case where the opposing party has raised unmeritorious claims and unsustainable defenses. However, it is also a strategic tool that attorneys can use not only to win cases, but also to narrow issues, educate the judge about the case, and determine an opponent’s strategy. Summary judgment can also be an effective way to save a client time and money.
To use summary judgment properly, it is important to have a fundamental understanding of the procedure and its pitfalls. This presentation provides a foundation for understanding summary judgment practice and resources that attorneys can use to their clients’ benefits at this crucial stage of litigation.
