how sad am I that I immediatly looked up 222 F.2d 333, hoping it really would be a hilarious case?

Ted

Not as sad as me for immediately recognizing that it couldn't be a real cite, because 222 F.2d was issued in 1955, rather than 2004.

Aaron

Could the exchange in the first two comments be fairly categorized as "Scenario #4" (or perhaps "Scenario #1a")? ;-)

Petey Pablo

Even sadder: Thinking that Anderson v. Smoot Sand & Gravel Corp. IS a really funny opinion.

Here is my contribution to the literature of unusual judicial opinions: "Federal Judge Sways to Rhythm of Talking Heads," which was the only post I've ever done that was picked up by the uber-weblog Boing Boing.

Stan

For your edification, the case at issue was

2004 WL 1717660

Enjoy.

Greg

The answer to this, as pointed out by the judge below, is that the call of 78.72 perches as the length of the third line in the deed from Smith to Simmons is manifestly a mistake.

That's funny.

equally as depressing; after countless months of document review finding a particularly embarrassing husband-wife spat about infidelity in email form and feeling the need to share it with everyone else in document review hell. also depressing--I couldn't think of any way to make that funny :(

because 222 F.2d was issued in 1955, rather than 2004

They *had* Federal reporters in 1955? ;)

If it makes you feel better, Stan, I find that it's still possible to entertain laymen with cases like Fisher v. Lowe and Mayo.
