"but mostly they are what we call in the biz "batshit crazy."

I almost laughed out loud. I have a wonderful collection of pro se briefs. One said "I am known for my healthy lifestyle. If anyone enjoys the empty calories of alcohol it is [will]. Apparently [will] has not looked in the mirror lately."

This was followed closely by an apology to the Court for some bad behavoir on his part. His apology: "I apologize to the court BUT NOT TO [WILL] A CLEAR CHILD ABUSOR OF THE WORST ORDER!" (his emphasis.)

I also have a brief from a guy who said the CIA broke into his house, masturbated him, and impregnanted a bunch of "CIA HORSES." Now that I think about it, it doesnt sound so crazy any more.

One of my dogs took one look at the devil dog and ... well see for yourself.

I think he's probably upset that a corgi didn't win the herding group at Westminster.

to further clarify for overseas readers, Monday is KIND OF a holiday here, and only the lucky ones get it off! I, for one, will be sitting here at my desk, same as always. I gotta get me one of these here guvmint jobs.

The other frustrating thing about pro se cases is trying explain to one's paying client why the judge won't simply dismiss the case on the grounds that it is "batshit crazy" but will allow the pro se litigant multiple opportunities to explain his claims. Somehow the statement that "yes, he is crazy, I know that, you [client] know that, and the judge knows that, but he's still entitled to his day in court (or at least the opportunity for discovery & various motions that will cost you lots of money before we can get it dismissed). Makes the client VERY grumpy.

Of course, I'd rather have that conversation than the one where I got charges dismissed, very quickly, for a young college kid who got picked up for possession. Having asked for & gotten dismissal within 2 minutes of having our case called b/c no field test had been done, the client turns to me and says "Gee, what did I need you for?" Sigh.

hahahah

"Do I get a refund since the case was dismissed?"

I typically respond with, "Do I get a bonus if you get locked up?"

>>>I think he is upset that someone on this blog said that he is fat.<<<

Wasn't me. I said many many tasty treats. I said *plump*.

"Do I get a bonus if you get locked up?"

Good one, I'll have to remember it (although I don't do criminal work in my current job, but I'm sure I can work it into the conversation somehow).

Anyway, the kid wasn't even paying me! I represented him for free as a favor b/c he was the son of an attorney at another firm who occasionally sent my firm business. The dad at least was appreciative, even if the kid wasn't.

I could set up an LJ for my husband's Devil Cat, and maybe she could correspond with the Corgi of the Damned... ?
