3d DCA Watch -- Special All Hallow's Eve Edition!

It's a special day inside the bunker, as the denizens get in the All Hallow's Eve spirit by swilling dark red "blood" coffee, munching on bowls of "eyeball" candy, and dressing up as their favorite Supreme Court Justice (guess who wore the Scalia mask this year, again!).

Me, I'm in my usual costume -- a full body suit composed of whole wheat pasta bolognaise -- sure it takes a lot of work and gets a little sticky by the end of the day but you never know, this might be the year it all comes together!

Let's dig into these truly spooktackular opinions:

Pietton v. Evertz:

One thing I love about state court is you can literally title your motion any way you want -- the more elaborate and specific and pejorative the better -- like this epic ex parte “Motion for Order Approving Settlement and to Enjoin One of the Potential Beneficiaries from Interfering with the Administration of [the] Probate [Estate] and from Taking Action Contrary to the Personal Representative’s Authority.”

With a title like that, what's left to put in the motion?

Roberts v. Roberts:

Note to trial judges:  if you impose attorney's fees as a sanction, best have an evidentiary hearing and put your findings in an order.

Come on, that's just downright apodictic!

Be safe tonight.

Funny blog! Re the Roberts decision: I mean who doesn't know that if you submit an order imposing sanctions you have to have findings of fact and conclusion of law? C'mon!

Blog is awesome awesomnes. Unlike some other blogs where they make fun of people's problems and engage in snicker doodle.

That's funny, 1:09. Serious question: how many state-court judges actually write their own orders? Other than a few hand-written asides or cross-outs, I can't say I recall seeing it done.

When things start getting overly logical, the attraction disappears.
A lot of men feel they need to embellish on many of the details of their life and while this may sound
good at first; it could be devastating down the road.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to
be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people
think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
