Summary judgment is basically about nothing. Meaning that if there is nothing there for the factfinder to determine, then the lawsuit should be summarily disposed of. Here’s a nifty thought to throw into your next summary judgment argument …

If there was a time when nothing existed, then there must have been a time before that — when even nothing did not exist. Suddenly, when nothing came into existence, could one really say whether it belonged to the category of existence or of non-existence?  – Chuang-Tzu

It might not win the case for you, but you it’s sure to get a reaction from the judge.
