how much I hate getting involved in others' lawsuits?
Without going into too much detail, one of our long-time contractors is going through a very, very messy divorce. And the husband-and-wife team is fighting over control of their company.
It's a large company, at least by local standards, with many employees, a fleet of trucks and heavy equipment, trailers, etc.
Even though we haven't used them in over a year, one of the soon-to-be-ex-partners wants us to provide a copy of every scrap of paper and e-mail exchanged from 2003 to 2015. (Hint: it's a lot.)
Have I mentioned that I work alone? As in "there's no staff to whom I can assign the copying duties"?
p.s. I did get a kick out of one thing in the request: they want copies of "verbal agreements".
