Described by various media outlets as a “dagger of a brief” and the “Greatest Legal Brief in the History of Jurisprudence,”
Mr. Melsheimer filed the summary judgment motion in response to claims by Ross Perot Jr. and Hillwood Investment Properties that Mr. Cuban had mismanaged the team. The filing included a large photo of a jubilant Mr. Cuban and members of the Mavericks holding the championship trophy.
The use of a photo in such a brief may be uncommon, but Mr. Melsheimer described the decision to highlight the team’s championship victory as a virtual no-brainer. The much-heralded motion will be highlighted in the 2012 edition of The Green Bag Almanac & Reader.
In November, a Dallas County judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by Mr. Perot and Hillwood.
