Ouch!! A federal judge not only denied a motion because it was “riddled with unprofessional grammatical and typographical errors that nearly render the entire Motion incomprehensible,” the judge put handwritten corrections on the pleading and ordered the attorney who filed it to send a copy of the corrections to his client.
Of course, you could also have your motion dismissed for negligent stapling.
It seems to be judges week. A Pennsylvania judge dismissed animal cruelty charges against a police officer accused of sticking his penis into the mouths of five calves because the grand jury couldn’t know whether the cows had been “tormented” or “puzzled” by the situation. “I’m not saying it’s OK,” the judge said, noting he was only addressing the situation of whether the conduct fit within the state’s animal cruelty laws.
