I think it's something in the water

Here in our state ... where even the legal system gets creative ...

When a lawyer in Tacoma, Washington, filed a lawsuit 465 pages long — with an eight-page title — the judge had enough.

Referring to a rule requiring "short and plain" allegations, Judge Ronald Leighton issued a short and plain limerick:

"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 rewrite and refile today."
