Does BETTE DAVIS EYES refer to BETTE DAVIS EYES or to BETTE DAVIS’ EYES?


Here is a motion to dismiss to trim the affirmative defenses and counterclaims. Read the end: the motion was made without filing the required SDNY pre-motion letter. I think moving party got off light with just a tsk-tsk.

Motion To Transfer: D.C. D. Nevada
