Today, amidst the current office insanity, 'Puter received from outside counsel a pro se defendant's pleadings. Pro se defendants are a blessing and a curse. Courts generally cut them wide latitude with regard to rules of civil procedure, filing deadlines and court conduct. However, the cases are usually easily won as the pro se defendant has no clue what he is doing.
Sometimes, pro se defendants can be good for a laugh. Today was one of those days. 'Puter's angry, crazy pro se defendant, writing in a motion filing cover letter stated:
If Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment is not withdrawn within 21 days, this motion will be filed with the court for costs and sanctions as a frivolous motion.Awesome. Now all 'Puter has to do is sit back and file his response stating the pro se defendant has admitted his filing is frivilous.
A laughable ending to an insane day.
