Benchslaps, Federal Judges, Jed Rakoff, Quote of the Day, S.D.N.Y.

Quote of the Day: I Award You No Points, And May God Have Mercy On Your Soul.

Not only am I dismissing your case — WITH PREJUDICE — but I am also referring you to the grievance committee, and will personally recommend that you are sanctioned. You lied to this Court, and that will not be countenanced. Now please leave my courtroom.

Judge Jed Rakoff, benchslapping (as reported by an ATL reader who witnessed Judge Rakoff in action for the first time, from the safety of the gallery).
