    You know, I agree with the judge. There really DOES seems to be no shortage of lawyers to take frivolous lawsuits to the Supreme Court.

    I keep hearing about a plaintive who appeals everything to the SC. And then doesn’t pay the lawyers

    If she put as much work into studying, doing homework, etc. as she does not doing those things, she’d get straight A’s.

    The company I worked for had to take a patent case to the Supreme court twice. It was over ten million dollars in legal fees and court costs.

    Two characters in a sled. Steep hill. Sled gains some air. Calvin and Hobbes tribute today? Looks great.

    Start charging the Lawyers for ALL the court costs when they take a Frivolous Lawsuit that they KNOW is nonsense, and you will see the number of those cases drop off dramatically.

    SANCTIONS FOR FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITSAlthough the procedure is different, under the law in both the District of Columbia and the State of Maryland, trial courts may award monetary sanctions for frivolous litigation. In Maryland, the decision is controlled by Maryland Rule 1-341, which provides:

    In any civil action, if the court finds that the conduct of any party in maintaining or defending any proceeding was in bad faith or without substantial justification the court may require the offending party or the attorney advising the conduct or both of them to pay to the adverse party the costs of the proceeding and the reasonable expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the adverse party in opposing it.”

    Buttercup could earn his first ‘honest’ income by becoming a consultant for folks who plan to hire lawyers then deny them payment, or to get financing for spurious schemes and avoid repaying the loans, or to fake up tax returns to avoid payment.

    The news had a report of a college Prof. who lost his/her/it’s job because the students complained about the course being ‘’too hard’’. Danae could try that attack.

    GoComics should implement a rating system for individual comic strips. I’d give this one a top rating.

    And why do some litigants appeal their cases to the Supreme Court? Have you seen who’s sitting on the Supreme Court these days? Just show up wearing that elephant pin in your lapel and your odds of winning automatically go up by at least 20%.

    Hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race,” Scalia wrote, accusing the majority of “declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency.

    “We are free today substantially; but the day will come when our Republic will be an impossibility. It will be an impossibility because wealth will become concentrated in the hands of a few. A Republic cannot exist upon bayonets; and when that day comes, when the wealth of the nation is in the hands of a few, then we must rely upon the wisdom of the best elements of the country to read just the laws of the nation to the changed conditions. "James Madison, 4th President of the U.S.

    What astounds me about Kari Lake is that the judge said, loud and clear, that her “evidence” was no such thing and wasn’t persuasive. Only for her to walk out and announce to the press that they had clearly proven everything. They won in court the same way they won the election – by LOSING.

    There was a Real Life lawsuit in Florida, many years ago, over whether or not the State owed a High School diploma to a student who, in spite of never progressing past 6th grade level in any subject, had been “Socially Promoted” all the way to Senior in High School. I’m not sure if his talent as a Football player had anything to do with all those promotions, but they do have a rule that players who Fail cannot play.

    Then, when Graduation day came, he was told that he had not earned a Diploma so could not Graduate.

    The lawyers argued over the merits of Social Promotion and Changing the Rules At The Last Minute for a while, then came to a Compromise where the guy could “Graduate” with the rest of his class but, instead of a Diploma, got a “Certificate of Attendance”.

    Of course, these days, the Reich Wing would hail him as a Huge Success in their efforts to Not Educate Anyone. So long as he never says “Gay”, of course.
