"What, fisty-cuffs?"

There was some discussion earlier today on the legal writing professors' listserve about a motion requesting a court to order a fist fight.  The document is available at http://www.legalreader.com/archives/images/fistfight.pdf.

Perhaps the movant's success will depend on the exact wording of the provision prohibiting dueling in the state's criminal code?  Such provisions, BTW, are often excellent fodder for statutory construction exercises in legal writing class.

P.S.  The quote in this post's title is from the song I'd Do Anything For You in the musical Oliver.
