Always, seek sanctions for the adverse lawyers. No cult criminal thug should live a minute with certainty about his personal future. The defense attorney cannot be trusted to fulfill this aspiration. The defense attorney can replace the client in a minute if fired. If the adverse lawyer is taken out of action, the job of the defense attorney may be lost. It should become a standard of due professional care to parse every word and to find a rule broken by the other side's lawyer. Because of the infinity of rules, no case should go without attack on the adverse lawyer.
It should begin with e-discovery of the adverse lawyer's computers for improper motive. If the judge makes an adverse ruling, his computers should get a forensic examination for bias.
