A federal judge's limerick in response to a 465 page complaint

"Plaintiff has a great deal to say,
But it seems he skipped Rule 8(a).
His Complaint is too long,
Which renders it wrong,
Please re-write and re-file today."

via ABA Journal (and Seattle Times)

Bored law clerk at the end of her clerkship?

There once was a clerk for the Judge
Who never bore a grudge
She didn't write long
But loved to wear thongs
To lawyers she was the bomb

Such a mysonginist...

There once was Judge's clerk
And boy, was he a jerk
The black robe he thought
was his to sport
but mentally he was too short.
