Bad pleadings

Attorney Carlos Moore filed a lawsuit against Governor Phil Bryant in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi.  The lawsuit seeks to have the Federal Court declare the government use of the Mississippi flag unconstitutional and requests various other relief.  Regardless of whether you agree with Attorney Moore or what your opinion of the ultimate merits of his claim, his pleadings are well drafted.

The same cannot be said for a group calling itself “We the People of the Great State of Mississippi.”  This Group or person that is not a party to the case, filed documents with the clerk.  The pleadings consisted of an “ANSWER TO COMPLAINT MOTION TO DISMISS” and a copy of the Holy Bible.  Brushing aside the fact that non-parties do not get to file responsive pleadings, this document is one of the most rambling, incoherent things I have viewed in quite some time.  Judge Reeves struck the the non-party filings with a quick text only order.
