Real Law

It's been that kind of week for the U.S. District Court in Washington.

A Washington, D.C. gentleman named Earnest L. Dixon conceived of a new way to replace George W. Bush at the White House. He's his own best advocate, explaining in his lawsuit that he was
"suing the formal District of Columbia Police for repossession of my mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington D.C. I want everyone to vacate the premises and leave the keys. Thank you."
Sorry Mr. Dixon! Late Thursday, in this inexplicably brief opinion,
U.S. District Judge Ellen S. Huvelle declared the lawsuit was the kind of "fantastic and delusional scenario" that deserves rapid dismissal.
Now, why didn't John McCain think of this strategy for reaching the White House...

And then, on Friday, U.S. District Judge James Robertson confronted a lawsuit by a Mr. Victor Alvarez, currently residing at the U.S. Medical Center for federal prisoners in Springfeld, Ill. In his lawsuit, Mr. Alvarez demanded a modest $999 trillion as a result of various federal authorities "using UFO exotic weapons of laser tubs-technologies and military spionage and known as ciber electronical brain monitors connected to my brain with laser cables connected to military computers."

Fantastic and delusional indeed; case, sadly, dismissed. All the details at
