Emergency Motion: Lawyer's Wife Unwilling to Accommodate Request to Give Birth After Deposition

Baby The South Florida Lawyers blog jokes that down in Coral Gables, Fla., "women and their narcissistic, ill-timed 'birthing' obsessions" are now starting to impact important things in life, such as deposition dates. In Plaintiff's Emergency Motion for Protective Order filed yesterday, attorney Joe Klock advised the court that today, July 14, "the deposition of Mr. Strickland was scheduled to be and is to be taken by Hugh Morgan, Joe Klock was to defend the deposition of Mr. Brakenhoff, and Juan Carlos Antorcha was scheduled to take the deposition of Mr. Pennekamp."

Obviously unconcerned with the justice system and the important legal matters her husband was handling, Mr. Antorcha's wife inconsiderately went into labor yesterday and subsequently delivered her baby. This prompted Klock to add the following footnote to his motion:

Undersigned counsel had specifically asked Mrs. Antorcha over last weekend to arrange the delivery for Friday evening, July 16, after 6:00 P.M., but Ms. Carolina Antorcha, with whom counsel was unable to converse, apparently was unwilling to accommodate the request.

I don't know how they roll down in Coral Gables, but Judge Carton rules that since Klock did specifically ask Mrs. Antorcha to delay the creation of the new human life until the weekend, the conflict is deemed "excused" and the motion is hereby GRANTED.
