However, for some of the errors, there was absolutely no way I would have known to put that into a motion. Partner seemed pretty disappointed but acknowledged that "We've all been there." To be fair, I shouldn't have made those mistakes, but its so damn difficult to get some of these assignments done perfectly on their time schedule, esp when i've never worked on a motion in limine or declaration or such in my life. Fuck, its so demoralizing.
I once cited a case in a motion that wasn't directly on point.
RAINMAKER PARTNER was MAF. This is a huge D Ct litigation - multi-billion dollar corporations.
Thought I was fired. Everyone forgot about it and moved on.
When you fuck up, own it, and move on. Everyone fucks up. Just don't make the same mistake twice. That'll get you shitcanned.
