The best 5 legal motions of 2009 by the editors of ATL

Here's a list of the top 5 legal motions from the past year compiled by the editors of Above the Law.  If they don't work as amusing fodder for your students, maybe they'll be a good distraction for you come  grading season.

5.   Motion to Compel State’s Attorney to Drop His Accent

4.   A Surprisingly Smutty Motion to Dismiss

3.   Motion to Compel Defense Counsel to Wear Appropriate Shoes at Trial

2.   Plaintiffs’ Motion for a [sic] Honest and Honorable Court System

And the # 1 best motion of 2009 as selected by the editors of ATL is . . . .

1.   Best. Motion to Continue. Ever

You can read the ATL synopsis of each of these motions here.
