Wednesday fun: Federal court ordered a motion denied due to incomprehensibility

Yes, it's true.  This Texas bankruptcy judge denied a defendant's motion due to incomprehensibility:

Before the court is a motion entitled “Defendant’s Motion to Discharge Response to Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant’s Response Opposing Objection to Discharge.” Doc. #7. As background, this adversary was commenced on December 14, 2005 with the filing of the plaintiff’s complaint objecting to the debtor’s discharge. (Doc. #1). Defendant answered the complaint on January 12, 2006. Doc. #3.  Plaintiff responded to the Defendant’s answer on January 26, 2006. Doc. #6. On February 3, 2006, Defendant filed the above entitled motion. The court cannot determine the substance, if any, of the Defendant’s  legal argument, nor can the court even ascertain the relief that the Defendant is requesting. The Defendant’s motion is accordingly denied for being incomprehensible.

It comes to us by way of a blog called Law Law Land that purports to compile the "most comprehensive array of legal humor ever." Check out some of the other humorous motions and court filings here.
