Judge Condemns Prolix Pleading; Pens Limerick at the End of the Order

Visit http://howappealing.law.com/PresidioGroupVsGMACMortgage.pdf to view a district court order condemning a pleading as prolix and requiring the plaintiff to replead.

Catching many readers' attention is the limerick by the judge at the end of the opinion:

Plaintiff has a great deal to say,
But it seems he skipped Rule 8(a),
His Complaint is too long,
Which renders it wrong,
Please re-write and re-file today.

Also notable was the fact that the complaint was 465 pages long, with the title of the racketeering lawsuit alone occupying eight pages.

465 pages? that really is long, and the title of the racketeering lawsuit alone occupying eight pages, but at what point is it too long? 10 pages? I cant view the district court order, the link doesn't seem to work, anywhere else i can get this?

Cheers,
Alex
