(Refined) Federal Rules Of Civil Procedure (R FRCP) (August 8, 2022)

. . .

K          “One federal judge held up a pen and stated that he affixes his signature to more motions and stipulations for extensions of time than to any other pleading.  Every deadline is absurdly short in practice.  The legal beagles in power should double all deadlines in the rules with one pen stroke.  Even the time to notice an appeal should be doubled.  A party oftentimes needs a longer period of time to accept intellectually and emotionally the consequences of a decision and the challenges of taking an appeal.  60 days instead of 30 to take an appeal.”

J          “That is the problem.  The deadlines are short to benefit the judges not the public.  Judges and lawyers do not take reasonable action without tremendous public pressure.”

J          “A judge who orders that you give up a long planned vacation on short notice to generate a draft order and do his work and then dawdles for six months before guessing which way to go is not a sage jurist or a good person.”

K          “Standard operating procedure (sop) in the court system.  Judges view themselves as gods rather than public servants.  Something must change.  Rule changes will not solve everything without a change in behavior.”
