Imagine you are the paralegal on a case where the opposing
counsel has fi led over 4,000 pages of pleadings. The
pleadings fill 18 volumes and require a cart to move them.
Does this violate any court rules? The Fifth Circuit Court of
Appeals thought so. Read Gordon v. Green, 602 F.2d 743
(5th Cir. 1979). What is the standard for fi ling a pleading?
What was the court’s disposition in the case? What
message was the court sending by stating “Let Thy
Speech Be Short, Comprehending Much In Few Words”?
