Zounds! Briefing in Crayon

Some Judges get really frustrated with lawyers and express their opinion through sanctions. Other judges get more creative.

Like Judge Samuel Kent from Galveston, Texas. Apparently upset with the poor quality of the briefs he received from counsel, he named them in his opinion, and expressed his opinion about the quality of their work.

With apologies to Lexis, here it is, in full glory: Bradshaw v. Unity Marine and Phillips Petroleum.

With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Judge Kent takes the lawyer to task for, among other things, using crayons to write their briefs.
