Friday Funbag: Why Does This Attorney Think Humans Have Dog Piss in Them?


My friend, an attorney here in Little Rock, says he got this Request for Admission this week from an attorney, whose name he kindly redacted even though he didn’t have to. And we all wish that he didn’t, I’m sure.

If I got this from someone I knew, I would probably laugh pretty hard. But…he doesn’t know the person who sent this. I have been assured that this person did not attend law school in Arkansas. 


If you’re reading this and you wrote it, please email me and tell me your thought process behind that decision. I’m not sure if this is meant to be funny or posturing or what, but…I’d sure like to know.

Other readers: have you ever gotten a completely off the wall discovery request? Do tell. 



When do I get to argue with James Spader?

Welcome to the Hawg Law Blawg!

“All things are filled full of signs, and it is a wise man who can learn about one thing from another.”

Enneads, bk II, Plotinus

This blog is designed for new attorneys (young and old) who practice in Arkansas. The first few years of law practice are difficult and can be scary.

The goals of this blog are to:

  • provide a one-stop-shop for questions about Arkansas law practice and general practice
  • share insights from attorneys and judges at every level of practice
  • support an easy way for new attorneys to share tips, tricks, hints and spells (if they are effective)
  • have a few laughs; and
  • help each other help our clients

What this blog is not:

  • legal advice (don’t get your legal advice on the internet!)
  • a forum to trash talk particular attorneys or judges (or anyone)
  • a representation of the opinions of anyone I am associated with or related to
