Q: Why is the lawyer watching the Discovery Channel?
A: Because he was told NOT to go on a fishing expedition.
This was created by my cousin JL who’s a new law graduate. I’ve to admit that this went over my head. So here’s her explanation:
‘discovery’ is a process whereby each party is supposed to disclose all related documents in a matter to each other.
however. it is not supposed to be a ‘fishing expedition’.
you can’t ask for everything under the sun hoping to get something that is related.
Yep, I still don’t get it. How about you?
