student suing their school
« on: February 01, 2007, 11:22:05 PM »
I don't know if someone has posted on this side yet about this (there is a thread on the other board)....A former Mich law student is suing UMich Law saying they are responsible for his poor grades (various legal theories expounded by him) because he couldn't type fast enough to get as much down on the paper as others could.

http://www.autoadmit.com/complaint.pdf

note: he is a pro se litigant and at the end of his complaint (see the link) under damages he notes that due to the difficult "legal nomenclature" associated with his ridiculous theories, he cannot plead damages with specificity.

the complaint is not too long, you should read it if you have a minute, it's pretty funny.

This sounds like a brilliant law school exam fact pattern... Who gets to be first to tackle it on a timed torts exam? And who says the profs don't have a sense of humor?  ;)

Personally, I think this UMich grad should join George Allen Ward (Ward v. Arm & Hammer, for an HTML verison of case go to Rutgers WebSite or Westlaw 341 F.Supp.2d 499.

Together, they could become the litigation form of Pro Se & Pro Se, P.A.

Their motto- no claim is to outrageous to handle! Mr. Law Grad could handle the outside work and Mr. Ward would handle the, um, inside work.

Remember- crack may be wack, but law school is for dopes.
