New Orleans Judge Ernest Jones postponed the opening of a trial from Monday until today because of Sunday’s National Football League NFC championship game between the Saints and the Chicago Bears (which the Bears won) “for the sake of all fans,” the Wall Street Journal Law Blog reports.
Gives new meaning to the dumb slogan, “Sports: It’s not brain surgery. It’s more important.” Well, for stupid judges, it apparently is (since they’d never qualify to learn how to do brain surgery, which is why they became lawyers and then judges). Read the silly motion citing football, which Judge Jones granted.
