Legal Beagles: Define In Re Complex

It has to do with depositions complex litigation.

Context clues and Latin tell me in regards to complex litigation but I prefer proof.



Anyone good at the Google and/or LexisNexis?

Need more context; "In Re Complex" is not a term with which I am familiar.

Give an example of when you have seen the term used, and I bet we can tag it.

A monthly meeting of defense attorneys regarding toxic tort litigation in Northern California over the phone. About 50 or 60 in attendance. Each represents a particular client who manufactured goods or provided a service suspected of being responsible for a plaintiff's asbestos related ailments.

I provide the webconferencing support for these meetings. Every day the same attorneys hold regular plaintiff depositions for particular cases but hold this monthly meeting and call it simply "In Re Complex" (and its not related to one specific court case, ie has no case name, no docket or matter #).

(I thought that was an Apartment Complex that had asbestos)

Complex Litigation is also a legal term: Which is just a specialized docket designed for complex civil cases, where one judge hears the case from beginning to end. Criteria includes: multiple parties, large amounts of money, lengthy trial or complex legal issues.

The law firm I work for handles a lot of asbestos related matters. The asbestos docket has literally thousands of plaintiffs and hundreds of defendants spread across multiple districts, so a In Re Asbestos must be set up.

Sounds like it is just a shorthand term applied to the meeting/conference call. We have several shorthand terms we use in government legal circles to describe routine re-occuring conferences.

Or it could be as is described below.

Perhaps one our resident civil litigators has a better idea. The subject matter is not something I'm familiar with, since I represent the good guys.  duck   stirthepot

Good one! No, I'm still quite happy to be starting off my greeting to the Court, as I did last month in the 9th Circuit, "May it please the Court, I am __________, representing the United States."
