“Lowering The Bar”: A Great Legal Humor Blog

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:45 pm

I must have seen the blog “Lowering the Bar” before — but I’m not sure. I stumbled across it tonight and will now make it a regular read. It highlights quirky and funny legal stories, and the writing is excellent.

Of the various posts I saw browsing around, my favorite was this collection of noteworthy court orders over several years. It’s worth looking at them all, but one that stood out was this one (.pdf): an Order Denying Motion for Incomprehensibility.

I think JD would appreciate this footnote:

Make sure to add Lowering the Bar to your RSS feeds and/or bookmarks. Best blog I have found since Popehat!

UPDATE: The author has recently put out a book called The Emergency Sasquatch Ordinance: And Other Real Laws that Human Beings Actually Dreamed Up. I bought it on Kindle tonight for less than eight bucks and started reading it. The guy is funny.

  1. I like this one. Be sure to read all the way to the end. http://kevinunderhill.typepad.com/Documents/Court_Orders/tick%20on%20a%20fat%20dog.pdf

    “More confused than a hungry baby at a topless bar.” I’m going to remember that. But there’s more.

  4. The “kindergarten party” was excellent… It reminded me of something that might come from Judge Otis Wright, III. (Popehat followers will understand.) The idea of “jumping naked into a 5-gallon bucket of porcupines” was a clear winner, however.

  5. I like the What is a Photocopier reenactment. Having worked for Xerox where they did not want anybody to use the word Xerox as a synonym for photocopy, the ending was hilarious to me.

  6. JD, Judge Kent was a bad person. He went to prison for bad things he did to his female court employees, and lying about it too.
