Don’t suck at law.


“Plaintiff’s counsel, apparently laboring under the impression that I am not dealing with a full deck and that my knowledge of diversity requirements is about equal to that of a low-grade moron, chose to disregard the directional signals posted in my  memorandum. Counsel brazenly, discourteously, defiantly, arrogantly, insultingly and under the circumstances rather obtusely threw back into my face the very allegations I had held insufficient by reiterating and incorporating those same crippled paragraphs. The so-called “amended complaint” itself cheekily informs me that these paragraphs allege the states of incorporation or (emphasis added) principal places of business of the defendant corporations. Of course, any law school student knows that both the state of incorporation and principal place of business must be diverse, but I suppose I can hardly expect any more from counsel whose familiarity with Title 28 U.S.C. 1332 could be no more than a friendly wave from a distance visible only through a powerful telescope.”

  1. This law stuff might not be all bad. I appreciate a good slam as much as the next person, although my taste is more toward than elegant, stiletto to the heart style slam than the generic “Yo Mama” slam commonly used in todays society. It seems that lawyers specialize in that manner of slam, and I do enjoy reading them. After all, courtesy is wiping your blade in between back stabs for a lawyer, is it not? Stabbing someone is one thing, getting your suit bloody is a whole different level.
