Webinar: Motions Practice in Employment Cases filed in Maryland's Federal Court
Thursday, October 01, 2020, 1:00 PM - 5:15 PM EDT
Category: MWELA Events

Hear from top practitioners and judges on motions to dismiss, discovery, and summary judgment.  Learn how employee-side attorneys draft complaints to best meet pleading standards, hunt for necessary information, and resist defense attempts to bar a trial through summary judgment.  Hear from management attorneys on how they hold their opponents to plausibility standards at the pleadings stage, cabin discovery to embrace only what is appropriate and proportional to the case in controversy, and draft effective summary judgment motions.  Finally, hear from three of our Federal Judges who will share their wisdom on how both sides can make their pleadings and motions practice more effective.
