    Motion Denied Because You're An Idiot
    Federal judge cites Adam Sandler's "Billy Madison" in order

    MARCH 6--In what is surely a first for the federal judiciary, a Texas bankruptcy judge has quoted from the Adam Sandler film canon in a recent opinion. Dismissing a motion due to "incomprehensibility," Judge Leif Clark cited a scene from "Billy Madison," Sandler's 1995 comedy, in a footnote to a February 21 court order. "Deciphering motions like the one presented here wastes valuable chamber staff time, and invites this sort of footnote," wrote a miffed Clark.

    Ha!

    They used to float a federal opinion in which the judge said the motions should have been written in crayon.
