Thanks to a tweet today from @LegalTweets, I discovered this amazing 2006 order in which Judge Leif Clark denied a party's motion on the ground of incomprehensibility.  What makes this order epic is the footnote reference in which the Court likens the motion to a statement made by Adam Sandler's character, Billy Madison, in the movie of the same name:    

Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard.  At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought.  Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.  I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
