Today I learned I won a pretty major motion. This is the kind of motion that if I had lost it, my client would be denied their day in court. Because we won, now I have to try to figure out how to construct a case on this piece that will win at trial, or look good enough to get us into a settlement position.
This one has been convoluted from the beginning because an insurance company has been involved. Therefore, logic does not always prevail.
Because I acted as the agent for my client with the insurance company, I may end up being a witness while someone else in our firm tries the case. Now that will be role reversal. Especially considering I spent the morning preparing another client for her trial next week.
Hmmm. I've always said I wanted to be on a jury to see the process from their perspective. I've had the honor of serving as a temporary judge a couple times and seeing that perspective. Now maybe I'll get to see the witness side.
That will be weird.
So instead, I'm digging through boxes of discovery to see if I can form a case without me.
And I'm reminded once again, that not every win leads to easy victory.
