OSA Network Order No. 1121
COST OF LITIGATION
(Taken from a despatch of 8 June 1973.)
Make the suit as expensive as possible for them and as inexpensive as possible for us.
One of the ways of making it expensive for them is used abroad and may be worked out for the US: The financial competence and financial responsibility of the plaintiff is continuously challenged such as on the grounds of being transient, or often shifting jobs or heavily in debt—thus making recovery of damages for the expense he is causing impossible.
This leads to examination of his finances for the suit for one thing; but abroad, bond after bond can be demanded, demurrers can be filed to taking depositions required of one on the grounds of expense and new challenges of financial responsibility can be made every time with new bonds.
The plaintiff is the one causing the trouble and he is NOT financially responsible at all. The attorney’s source of funds can thus be traced. Change of venue can be re-pleaded at every opportunity and also on these grounds of financial burden.
