Kiss My Habeass

The duties of the federal judiciary sometimes extend to bizarre realms. Case in point is Washington v. Alaimo, 934 F. Supp. 1395 (S.D.Ga 1996). The opinion of Judge Moore begins:
On April 5, 1996, this Court ordered Plaintiff to show cause why this Court should not impose Rule 11 sanctions upon him for filing a motion for improper purposes. The motion which Plaintiff filed was entitled "Motion to Kiss My Ass" (Doc. 107) in which he moved "all Americans at large and one corrupt Judge Smith [to] kiss my got [sic] damn ass sorry mother fucker you."
The entire opinion is worth a read.

An amusing little yarn. I've seen some amusing appeals from inmate "frequent filers" in my externship but this guy wins for both aggression and creativity. While Section 1915A now gives the courts a means of screening out frivolous claims, and the plaintiff's "motions" lacked merit, the court's invocation of the 'boy who cried wolf' fable rings pedantic. Isn't this kind of angry response the plaintiff's objective?
