Greatest Judicial Opinion of Our Time

This has to be seen by all judicial and college football fans. I’m not sure what the original complaint was, but the opinion is great. Pay special attention to the footnotes to learn that it is the official opinion of the U.S. Judicial system that the “Game of the Century” for this century is the 2006 Rose Bowl.

    Well they had me until the footnote describing the Razorbacks’ “departure for the gentler pastures” of the SEC. Yeah. And fire is cold, and water isn’t wet. The truth is they ought to call the SEC the Dental Conference, because no SEC team emerges at the end of the season without half of their teeth knocked out. In comparison, the SWC schedule looked like a Japanese foot massage. Even now in the big 12 I don’t think UT even has to wash their uniforms until the third game or so.
    But that doesn’t mean that the 2006 Rose Bowl wasn’t the game of the century. You’ll never meet a person more apathetic about football than my wife, and yet I’ll never forget her standing on our sofa screaming “Get him! GET HIM!!!” during the excruciating gut check for the Horns defense on the Trojans’ final possession of the game.

    Heh.  That is a good one.

    Just for edification, normally the parties draft the order that they want the Judge to sign, and the winning party usually gets it’s executed, sometimes with minor changes by the Judge.  The reason this Judge drafted his own Order is primarily because this dispute was about discovery, and all judges, in every court, HATE discovery disputes.  They are on par with having to decide which of your kids really is responsible for whatever ruckus you’ve been forced to settle.  In short, judges just don’t want to hear about it.

    Anyway, the ruling is also brilliant for its Solomonesque decision to hold the deposition in Texarkana with each party remaining on his/her side of the state line.  Classic.
