In this article, I review an unpublished appellate court decision in New Jersey that illustrates the absurdity with the practice of law.   In this case, the parties likely spent more than $15,000 in appellate litigation fees to reverse a trial court’s abuse of discretion for refusing to grant an adjournment of a trial in a medical malpractice case, where the adjournment was necessitated by the unavailability of one of the defendant doctor’s attorneys because he was on trial in another case.
