What not to say when you are trying to get a court to hear your case

March 28, 2007 08:58 AM

I had to laugh when I read this in a Motion for Discretionary Review that was filed recently with the Supreme Court of Kentucky:

This Court should grant this motion in order to clean up what have become the Augean stables of Kentucky job discrimination jurisprudence...

In other words, Kentucky Supreme Court, your rulings are shitty.  Not exactly the best thing to say to a Court when you are trying to get them to rule your way. 

The way the attorneys try to convince the Court that their gender discrimination case is unique also made me laugh.  They try to distinguish it from age discrimination cases, stating:

Age discrimination cases are different, because everybody gets old.  Females, on the other hand, always are females.  They never become males, or start out that way, absent radical surgery.

If I had any faith in the Supreme Court of Kentucky (and I do not) I'd say this appeal is doomed.
