My life in the legal world and in sports has been merging a lot lately. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote for Comcast Sports Southeast on a (frivolous) lawsuit filed against the University of Georgia and essentially any and everyone ever associated with the football program.
Today, I come to you with an even funnier legal document. Generally, a Motion for Continuance is boring. Sometimes an attorney has another case being heard on the same day. In other cases, an attorney needs more time to prepare. There are a million reasons to ask for a continuance.
This is the first time I’ve seen a Motion for Continuance citing the World Series as the conflicting obligation.
Dallas-based attorney, Darrell Cook, is not only a diehard Rangers fan with tickets to the games in San Francisco, he’s also a comedian. Even if you’re not a lawyer, this motion is a must read.
Just a few snippets to entice you to click here for more:
Mr. Cook states, “he has developed a love of the Rangers that has gone generally unrequited for thirty-eight (38) years.”
“Everything between Darrell and the Rangers was business as usual this year: a) Josh Hamilton was discovered drunken and covered in whip cream. . .”
“Darrell went to all three games played in Arlington against the Yankees and creid in the stands as the Rangers defeated the Evil Empire known as the New York Yankees.”
There’s so much more, including footnotes that provide further amusement. If you never read another legal document in your life, read this one!
