In 2021, litigation errors constituted one-third of all the claims reported to Lawyers Mutual. Plaintiff’s Personal Injury, under the litigation umbrella, constituted the single practice area with the most reported claims. Missed deadlines breed the most errors. The lack of a good calendaring and docket system is the main reason attorneys miss deadlines. Remote work and not being in the office with other attorneys and support staff has compounded this problem.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court of North Carolina issued an administrative order regarding motions for the disqualification or recusal of supreme court justices. The order indicates that the Court shall assign the motion to the justice who is the subject of the motion for their determination.
