BLS April 2022 Detailed 42-Page Practice Guide

Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP
In conjunction with the Massachusetts Bar Association, the current BLS judges prepared personalized responses to practice-related questions. Those questions and answers were then turned into a practice guide, which you can link to here. The guide, presented in question-and-answer format, has a wealth of information on topics of interest to practitioners and clients alike.
The topics include:
  • relevant factors considered in deciding whether to accept a case into the BLS;
  • preparation for and participation in conferences, including Rule 16 case management conferences and pretrial conferences;
  • differences between motions to seal and motions to impound and how such motions are decided;
  • the level of detail required of expert disclosures;
  • considerations in deciding the need for expert depositions;
  • gut reactions to motions for leave to file memoranda in excess of the specified page lengths;
  • willingness to stay discovery during the pendency of a motion to dismiss;
  • appropriate timing for filing of Daubert-Lanigan motions;
  • preferred practices for parties seeking preliminary injunctions or other preliminary relief;
  • trial scheduling and related considerations; and
  • modern tools to engage and assist jurors.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
