Don’t pretend you’ve never been tempted to respond like this when you get a bad decision from a court:
I find it hard to believe that after the Court had the motion for 5 months to decide, that it could make up facts to support a finding. . . . But then…if you do not read plaintiff’s papers maybe it is possible.
Close your eyes and wish for facts to grant a defendant’s summary judgment.
WHERE DID THE COURT GET THIS? THIS IS STATED NO WHERE IN [Plaintiff’s expert’s] REPORT. LA LA LAND, I COULD NOT MAKE THIS UP IF I TRIED.
THIS IS LA LA LAND ON STEROIDS…I CAN NOT COMPREHEND THE #%*$^% THAT IS THIS DECISION… This is so bizzaro land that it is hard to type. What is even more pathetic is the case I cited (citation omitted) has been ignored.
That’s what it took for attorney Gino Giorgini to get the judge to read his papers, stop making up facts and reverse the summary judgment order.
In other words, it worked.
Two years later, Mr. Giorgini again expressed frustration with the court for not reading his papers:
This is outrageous!!!!!!! How dare the court disrespect my elderly client for the benefit of some political contributors. I guess my reply/sur-reply was not read. I pointed this out in my first paragraphs. Let me see…perjury…no problem…fraud…no problem….what a joke. I guess if you hire the right politically active lawyers like [opposing counsel] anything is excusable with this court. . . . I spent countless hours proving plaintiff’s fraud; putting forth case law so on point that there is no issue of defendants prevailing and the Court doesn’t read my papers. Do you know how angering that is?
We know just how he feels!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, the Appellate Division decided that Mr. Giorgini’s flaming prose constituted “undignified or discourteous conduct which is degrading to a tribunal,” and suspended him from practicing law for three months.
They oughta lighten the #%*$#^% up.
