    The word you are groping for is 'incitement.'

    In some cases, the employer is responsible for the actions of their employee. The legal doctrine is called, respondeat superior, which means, 'let the master answer.'

    So basically some feel it is wrong because their feelings tell them so. I would suggest reading the ruling, he can appeal all he wants but his lawyer is claiming they didn't have enough time to
    prepare
    Orlando Sentinel
    Here is the ruling:

    As long as it doesn't appear that they are unnecessarily delaying things, any party should be entitled to the necessary days it takes to get the information sought.
    But fifteen days isn't nearly enough time for anybody. Or do you not think about what is involved in tracking down relevant info?
