Issacharoff and Miller Post Motion to Dismiss Article on SSRN

Professors Samuel Issacharoff and Geoffrey Miller (both of NYU) have just posted an article entitled An Information-Forcing Approach to the Motion to Dismiss on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This article proposes a new approach to the 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss. The idea works as follows. Defendant moves to dismiss exactly as under current practice. Plaintiff either responds to the motion, thus submitting the matter for decision, or files an affidavit proposing a plan of targeted discovery. After receiving defendant’s response, the court approves, rejects, or revises the proposed discovery plan. If the judge allows discovery, defendant either withdraws the motion or produces the information. If defendant withdraws the motion, the litigation proceeds in the usual way. If defendant continues the motion the parties engage in targeted discovery. The court then reviews the motion taking account of information which either party brings to the court’s attention, including information produced in discovery. If the court grants the motion, the case is dismissed and plaintiff pays defendant’s reasonable fees and costs associated with the motion and associated discovery. If the court denies the motion, the case continues and defendant pays plaintiff’s reasonable fees and costs. Our proposal would incentivize both parties to reveal information pertinent to the court’s decision. It promises to improve the operation of the motion to dismiss regardless of the substantive standard used to evaluate the sufficiency of the claims for relief.

It's amazing how stupid the world can be. If there is truly anyone who does not think for one minute that all the Iranian government wants is to start with Israel & then move on to any other nation it decides it dislikes, then that person is insane at best.
