#4 I think that the only reason it took as long as it did to dismiss the case is that the judge couldn't stop laughing.

#5 A lawyer for PETA said the group has not decided if it will appeal the ruling but vowed the fight on behalf of the whales will continue.
Which means the [infamous] 9th Court of Appeals. That's a fifty/fifty proposition [as long as it's not number 8].

#6 It used to be a legal principal that courts would only hear cases based on subjects involving the law, not a judge's whim that he wanted to be entertained by something interesting.
The US has some 3,600 federal judges, any one of whom can now whimsically hear cases for their entertainment. And they do. Unfortunately there is no organization other than congress that can say, "No, that is stupid. Quit wasting taxpayer money and log-jamming your court with b.s. like that."

#8 That's OK - PETA will just appeal to the "9th Circus" which will rule in their favor.

#9 Since it appears we now have lawyers doing stand up comedy, perhaps we should declare a ten year moritorium on graduating lawyers from school and just send them all to Ringling Brothers?
I believe the ruling took a long time because the judge broke his hip falling out of his chair laughing at the poor barristership of the plantiff. Even Namu was shaking his head at the thin porridge in the brief.

#10 Bill: Wouldn't that be terribly cruel to people who suffer from Coulrophobia?
"A clown is coming to get you!"
"A clown who is also a lawyer!"
"Eeek! Eeek!" (faints)
(There are too many 'evil clown' pictures to choose from on GIS.)
