Dondi Properties Corp.
4 Jun 2009 at 6:01pm
The case Dondi Properties Corp. v. Commerce Sav. & Loan Asso., 121 F.R.D. 284 (1988) imposes an affirmative requirement on litigants to "play nice" with one another and timely file papers. Judge Houser expexts compliance with the order.

Although the officers of the court may take pleasure in breaking from their oaths, their conduct ultimately results in statements such as that posted by Mr. Slye.
