To do well before Judge Scheindlin, you must master the following sentence: 'Judge, can we brief it?' or its variation 'Judge, can we have a briefing schedule?' When this Judge gets a set of papers, she usually produces a very nice, well-thought out ruling. However, if you ask for a ruling 'on the fly' then watch out -- you don't know what you are going to get. Can be anything from solid to downright bizarre. Overall, pretty good at case management and other Magistrate-type things. But on substantive issues, you have to get her written submissions.
