And Now for Something Completely Different


Our scan of new filings in the Supreme Court turned up a new petition by one of the Court's most colorfully named persistent litigants, Eurica Califorrniaa, Ambassador of the Juridic State of Nature. The docket is here, and the full petition is here. He wants a writ of mandamus to the U.S. Marshal "for a stay of lethal execution to prevent gestational children from being made victims of homicide." A docket search for Mr. Califorrniaa's uniquely spelled name turns up two previous filings. The probability of this one receiving the same treatment asymptotically approaches unity. Without disparaging the seriousness of the underlying issue, this joker and his filings provide some amusement.
