Video Discussion

  1. Based on the video, how would you define a motion?
  2. How would you define a motion to dismiss?

You will see as we read the court’s decision that defendants moved to dismiss the case. The basis for defendant’s motion was that plaintiffs did not have an attorney. 

  • Can you think of a reason why a civil case should be dismissed if a plaintiff does not have an attorney? 
  • In your own country, are there civil cases in which a party is required to have an attorney?
  • In your own country, do parties in a civil or criminal litigation have the right to an attorney, even if they cannot afford to pay the attorney?
