This is what happens when you piece together motions from random books you find in the law library.

By the way, not only is this the first time a federal court has ever quoted from Billy Madison in a published opinion, it's only the second time it's ever been mentioned. See Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. v. Landa, 974 F.Supp. 1, 9 (C.D. Ill. 1997).

Any Judge who cites to an Adam Sandler movie is worthy of great respect in my book.

What also impressed me is that the judge didn't even enjoy a lifetime appointment. He obviously didn't care whom he ticked off.

That said, I would wonder whether the incomprehensible party was pro se or not. I would not praise the court's order in the former case. Pro se litigants may be incomprehensible, but they shouldn't be tweaked for it.

The tweaked defendant, Richard Willis King, is also running for the Texas state legislature from the 124th district.

Beautiful, G-A, beautiful. I note from your link that even though he's a Republican, he couldn't get the NRA's imprimatur. Maybe they, too, find him incomprehensible.

Has anyone found a copy of the actual memo that prompted the order? I'd really like to read that one...
