No, not daunting. (Ok, just a little)

I am working on a seven-figure case dealing with a factset that I just do not understand.

I just don’t get the nuances of the facts, I mean I understand why we are suing, I understand the amount of money at issue, but I don’t understand why we win. Or how we can make a case. To add to this fun, I have a horrendous pain in the ass pretentious big law opposing counsel to deal with.

My task is simple: spew foundationless tripe that turns itself into a pre-trial settlement demand.

My problem is complex: I don’t even know how to start bullshitting on this topic.

My motivation is: the court threaten sanctions if I don’t make the deadline.

Oy. Vey.
