COMMON LAW: Hyperloop Hyperlitigation
The response to one of these is always a counter-suit that makes a bid to raise the stakes of outrageously wrongful conduct by the plaintiff(s). Both sides will then engage in motion practice to seek dismissal of the other side’s allegations and then preliminary injunctions and receiverships to divest the other side of control of the entity. While all of this is going on, associates will compete with one another to draft the most intrusive discovery imaginable. Forensic accountants every bit as expensive as litigation services will be retained to demonstrate how each side stole from the other and that’s why there’s no money. Perhaps it’ll reach the point of depositions with questions crafted to maximize the emotional cruelty. And of course let’s not forget the systematic demonization of opposing counsel, every remark and letter of which will be preserved for use as a “see this proves they’re lying and playing games” exhibit.
