The Honorable Judge Dr. Seuss Now Presiding

A federal district court judge has responded in verse to an inmate's lawsuit. The inmate sued his prison's kitchen staff because they keep putting eggs in his meals, despite the inmate's repeated requests for them not to. He protests that he doesn't eat eggs and sought a preliminary injunction against the prison.

Judge James R. Muirhead was apparently inspired when the inmate included a hard-boiled egg with his filing. Muirhead ordered:

I do not like eggs in the file. I do not like them in any style. I will not take them fried or boiled. I will not take them poached or broiled. I will not take them soft or scrambled Despite an argument well-rambled.

No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Destroy that egg!
Today! today!
Today I say! without delay!

SO ORDERED (with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

I have been informed that Cuffy posted on this the other day. Good for him/her/it.

Another example of judicial humor can be found here, where a different federal judge referenced Billy Madison in dismissing a motion.
