Judge Larry Primeaux's Blog about Practice in Mississippi's Chancery Courts.

I saw a complaint once that alleged a “vindictive vendetta.” As opposed to the non-vindictive vendetta.
If you’re going to do vendetta, it had better be vindictive if you expect to be vindicated. Just sayin’.
The non-vindictive vendetta is also known as the “couch vendetta.”
I think it is a rare pleading that could not be improved with the phrase “possibly using witchcraft.” Defendant then tortiously interfered with Plaintiff’s lawful business, without right or justifiable cause, possibly using witchcraft ….
Yes, I agree. But that word “possibly” should always be included so as to avoid R11 sanctions!
Exactly. “Your Honor, the pleading stated that opposing counsel was POSSIBLY a witch/pervert/Justin Bieber … how is that sanctionable?”
