The Adam Sandler Response

O, what a glorious day for the law when quotes from Adam Sandler movies make it into the opinions of Federal judges . . .

No, honestly, I am not being sarcastic. I love it. Truly.

Imagine being this judge's law clerk and being asked to watch Adam Sandler movies as research for drafting an opinion.

I look forward to the day Chief Justice Roberts will feel the intellectual freedom to quote Cartman from South Park --

"The argument of petitioner, according to the well-established precedent of this Court, is 'all a bunch of tree hugging hippie crap . . .' See Cartman, South Park Episode XX."

And if I can ever find my way onto the bench . . . episodes of The Family Guy will be studied in law schools a hundred years from now as pertains to the affect they will have had on American jurisprudence.

For instance, if you find that your property is not recognized on a particular map . . . you will have the right to secede and declare yourself a separate country, but you will not have the right to annex your neighbor's swimming pool. See, e.g., Family Guy, Season Two, "E Peterbus Unum."

There will even be elements developed to help determine when this is an acceptable practice.

And it will be "Freakin' Sweet."

Apparently that's not the only Adam Sandler footnote floating around out there. A judge in The Tenth Court of Appeals in Texas responded to a footnote in the majority opinion by saying, So my response to footnote 4 is, quoting Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer, "Once again, things that could have been brought to my attention YESTERDAY!" The Wedding Singer (New Line Cinema 1998) (motion picture).
