Be Careful with those Briefs, Counsel!

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals issued an opinion in a wage & hour case (Lamb v. New Horizons Center, Docket: 2010AP002030) this week on whether summary judgment and the attorney's fees submitted was appropriate and ended on a scolding note:

We are also disturbed by the tendentious tone of both parties' briefs and remind counsel that respect for the courts and counsel requires civility. See WIS. SCR 62.02; Aspen Services, Inc. v. IT Corp., 220 Wis. 2d 491, 508­509, 583 N.W.2d 849, 856 (Ct. App. 1998).

Yikes.
