Wow ok I missed this thread originally and it is kind of cool.

I have directly relevant recent experience to add to this thread, thanks to Joe, as I watched Wayne's World with my boys tonight.

I'm reminded of the case of Noble v. Bradford Marine.

Background: one of the defendants (Prime Time Charters) attempted to be an ******* and filed for removal of the case, which was a state matter, to a federal court based on an arcane and rather tortured interpretation of the constitution and maritime law.

In a rather hilarious court opinion, the US District Judge publicly mocked said defendant by modeling his entire response on Wayne's World, and ended by ruling that "Prime Time's most bogus attempt at removal is "not worthy" and the Defendants must "party on" in state court."

Any one who enjoys amusing legal anecdotes should read the full court opinion: Noble v. Bradford Marine, Inc., 789 F. Supp. 395 (S.D. Fla. 1992) :: Justia
