I shaved my balls for this?


My slick and shiny balls

Well, that was fast.

This lawsuit got filed, and before I got to have any real fun with it… the Above the Law Lawsuit was dismissed. I got to write one measly letter.

Shame… I was really hoping to open up this can of whup ass I have lying around. Now what am I gonna do with it?

Hat tip to commenter #9 for the title.

    Well, this certainly takes the fun out of things. I hope you’re proud of yourself.

  3. Awesome! Any way you could share some of the highlights of the letter?

    Or just post the letter?

    • I believe that doing so would be improper. It was a settlement communication. The case is over. No need to post anything more. Although I have some serious criticism of the decision to file the suit in the first place, everyone is entitled to a mulligan. Professor Jones did rectify his error as quickly as one could, before too much in legal fees got spent. Accordingly, I see no reason to heap anything more than what I’ve already said.

        A settlement communication, really? Having read the complaint, if I had sent a letter to the nutty professor prior to filing a MTD, it would have been a sanctions safe-harbor letter under FLS 57.105(4). I’m guessing that’s exactly what you did. On the other hand, I can respect the decision to save D Jones further embarrassment.

        The settlement privilege would prevent the letter being introduced in court — but not its being posted on the internet.

  9. Fantastic! Between this and your anti-Glenn-Beck masterpiece, you are really on a roll. Good work!
