Serve and Volley Legal Techniques

“The Street Lawyer”, page 255, by John Grisholm

“As with any lawsuit, there were a number of ways to proceed with our action against the defendants.  The first was the ambush.  The other the serve and volley.”

“The serve and volley would begin with a letter to the defendants, in which we made the same allegations (as in the ambush), but rather than sue we would invite them to discuss the matter.  The letters would go back and forth with each side generally able to predict what the other might do.” 

Serve and volley is a tennis term; the ball is served, then hit back and forth (volleyed) until a  score is made by one side.
