“A Wisconsin lawyer has informed a federal court that he and his client missed a June 6 deposition because the email notice went to the lawyer’s junk email folder.

Davis says that, when he became aware of the problem, he offered to reschedule the deposition within the week left for discovery, but a lawyer for the state said she would not be available.”
