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.
