Busier Than a One Legged Cat in a Sandbox …

July 29, 2011

Well, yes, I suppose I have been as busy as a one legged cat in a sandbox; but this is not about me …

It’s all about an order issued on July 19, 2011 by the Honorable Martin J. Sheehan of the Kenton Circuit Court of Kentucky in the matter of Kissel v Schwartz & Maine. Sometimes judges are just a little silly –

The text of the order reads, in part, as follows:

ORDER

The herein matter having been scheduled for a trial by jury commencing July 13, 2011, and numerous pre-trial motions having yet to be decided and remaining under submission;

And the parties having informed the Court that the herein matter has been settled amicably (the Court uses the word amicably loosely) and that there is no need for a Court ruling on the remaining motions and also that there is no need for a trial;

And such news of an amicable settlement having made this Court happier than a tick on a fat dog because it is otherwise busier than a one legged cat in a sand box and, quite frankly, would have rather jumped naked off of a twelve foot step ladder into a five gallon bucket of porcupines than have presided over a two week trial of the herein dispute, a trial which, no doubt, would have made the jury more confused than a hungry baby in a topless bar and made the parties and their attorneys madder than mosquitoes in a mannequin factory

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED AND ADJUDGED by the Court as follows:

1. The jury trial scheduled herein for July 13, 2011 is hereby CANCELLED.

… y’all have a great weekend!
