>>> I've learned that in the practice of law, taking a short cut is almost always a bad idea.

And that's precisely one of the main problems with the law as it's practiced today.

Besides, the Court's decision is astoundingly ridiculous. It should listen to how pitiful is sounds sometimes. The "letter adequately conveyed the information mandated by the prescribed form (!!!)," BUT ... "the defendants failed to establish that the letter had been issued in duplicate ..." blah blah blah. Sounds like the script to a Monty Python skit to me.


"Sounds like the script to a Monty Python skit to me."

That about sums up the world of No-Fault litigation which, thank the good lord, I have nothing to do with anymore.


You're right, Richard. It sounds exactly like a MP skit--or something from "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0371724/quotes ):

The Book: Vogons. They are one of the most unpleasant races in the galaxy. Not actually evil, but bad-tempered, bureaucratic, officious, and callous. They wouldn't even lift a finger to save their own grandmothers from the ravenous Bug-Blatter Beast of Traal without orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, lost, found again, queried, subjected to public inquiry, lost and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighter. On no account should you allow a Vogon to read poetry to you.
