Wheeee.....

Manifestly I need to start reading Popehat.

We start with: Does Prenda Believe In No-Win Scenarios? Because Judge Wright Just Gave Them One.  For background see also What Prenda Law Is Facing in Los Angeles, and don't miss Judge Wright's Order re Sanctions.  Last time I had this much fun was reading Judge Sparks' comments on the Secret Service's treatment of Steve Jackson Games  (see EFF: Steve Jackson Games vs United States Secret Service)

I love the bit about "the Romulans have a somewhat better grasp of due process than IRS CID"

Ouch.

I sent the links to a lawyer friend. He found it hilarious. Also the most royally pissed-off order he'd seen in decades. :)

And as someone in the endless list of comments after the "Does Prenda.." article pointed out, the Star Trek references will insure it will remembered by everybody.

Methinks the Judge has a touch of the bard. And you know what they say about angering a bard...

"This punitive portion is calculated to be just below the cost of an effective appeal."
To quote George Takei, "Oh, myyyy!"

I'm gonna have to read the rest, but "They're screwed" is putting it very mildly. something like saying Klingons aren't very nice.

Bless you Kay. That was the funniest, sharpest, and most satisfying piece of Real Life that I've ever read. Pure awesomeness.

I should probably mention that I learned about this from osewalrus, who has my deepest gratitude.

I just read the Judge's order, and "Oh, myyyy!"
You can always count on California for entertainment, and Judge Ito was only the captain of the California District's Flagship. XD
