” It is almost as if Plaintiff ’s counsel chose the opinion by throwing long range darts at the Federal Reporter…”

 Bradshaw v. Unity Marine Corp. (147F Supp. 2d 668 (S.D. Tex. 2001)) just may be the most entertaining court ruling I have ever read. I am making a spectacle of myself in Starbucks as I giggle, snort, and laugh outright at this gem of snarky jurisprudence.  Judge Samuel B. Kent, my hat is off to you. I have a strong suspicion that you would be a great guy to have a beer with, or a Scotch, however you roll.

Any court opinion that contains the words “What the ….?!” is worth paying attention to.

[Edited to correct the name of the case. Sheesh. My only defense is that I was laughing too hard to proofread properly.]

[Edited again to add: Actually, as it turns out, Samuel Kent wasn’t a good guy after all, or a even a decent human being. He resigned in the face of impeachment hearings, following his guilty plea on charges arising from his non-consensual sexual contact with female employees.

It still is a funny opinion, though.]
