Need to dodge a lawsuit?
Whether you’re a plaintiff or defendant, you must know what smart defendants do to dodge lawsuits.
If a defendant is served with a complaint, he may dodge the lawsuit by filing motions to avoid filing an Answer!
This is called the “flurry of motions”.
Once a defendant files an Answer, he’s locked in and misses this chance to dodge the lawsuit altogether.
Don’t file an Answer if you can dodge the lawsuit with a “flurry of motions”.
- Motion to Dismiss
- Motion to Strike
- Motion for More Definite Statement
Each of these motions postpones the necessity of filing an Answer to the Complaint … and gains you valuable time and evidence-gathering opportunities!
In some cases it puts an end to the case. Period!
Failure to use the Flurry of Motions weakens your case.
