It turns out that Jean-Paul Sartre's famous pronouncement that "hell is other people" was overly broad. Other people per se are not the problem, but rather other lawyers -- and uncooperative ones at that. A federal judge in the late 1980s confirmed as much, as a recent e-discovery opinion reminds us: "If there is a hell to which disputatious, uncivil, vituperative lawyers go, let it be one in which the damned are eternally locked in discovery disputes with other lawyers of equally repugnant attributes."[FOOTNOTE 1]
