7th Circuit chastises counsel for misleading Court on Summary Judgment

We enjoyed reading this snippet on a decision of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in which counsel tried to misrepresent the record to the Court of Appeals by using misleading narrow passages from the record to support their position.  The Court not only overturned the granting of Summary Judgment,  but it chastised counsel for the Defendant for  “misstat[ing] the record on summary judgment by selectively quoting from deposition testimony.

The comeuppance doled out to counsel who unsuccessfully tried to pull one over not he Courts is satisfying.
