The worst pro se filing ever?
April 23, 2015 Leave a comment
Last week on tax day made 15 years for me in the practice of law. In that period of time I have crossed paths with some really good people and a considerably smaller group that were anything but. Just when I thought I had viewed most every absurd thing that could be filed in a court, I saw this jewel that was filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia by an irate pro se plaintiff. I did not bother to count the number of F-bombs in her “Notice to F*ck this Court and Everything It Stands For” but the number is substantial.
This woman will likely end up in jail or a mental institution in the very near future.
Here is a small piece of advice I give every client before deposition and that applies equally to anyone filing a document in Court…..Do not use profanity for any reason unless you are directly quoting to the Court what someone else said that is important to your case.
Unfortunately, something will likely top this pro se pleading before I make my next 15 years.
