E. COMMUNICATION WITH ADVERSARIES
  • Counsel always should be civil and courteous in communicating with an adversary, whether in writing or orally.
  • Letters or electronic mail should not be written to ascribe to one's adversary a position that the adversary has not taken or to create "a record" of events that have not occurred.
  • Unless specifically permitted or invited by the court, letters and electronic mail, between counsel should not be sent to judges.
