In my practice of law we often make motions asking the Court to grant some request on behalf of our client. There are occasions when a Court rules against my client (very rare!) because of facts unknown at the time of the motion. The law allows for a “do-over” (usually frowned upon) when evidence previously unobtainable or unknown is discovered. These motions are called “Renewal Motions.” We ask the Judge to revisit an issue because of new evidence—kind of like video replay for litigation. It allows for a fresh look and a new beginning.

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines renew as, “ to make (something) new, fresh, or strong again; to begin (something) again especially with more force or enthusiasm; to make like new; restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection.”

RENEW! That’s my message for the month. Let’s make like new! Let’s restore to freshness, vigor and perfection.
