    Why stop at Spanish? This is beyond ridiculous and if it’s allowed to continue you’ll have folks filing documents in hundreds of languages from German and Farsi to Zulu and Klingon.

    Erick: Don’t worry, the downhill has been going on for a while. Spanish-speaking defendants have been getting “waiver of rights” sheets to sign and complete for years which are submitted into the official court record as part of any plea.

    No Klingon’s yet, though (grin).

    I want all my adversaries to file everything in a language other than English. That way, the judge can’t read them and my English documents will always win!

    Sorry, that was unintentionally a bit jingoist. Obviously, someone who is bilingual (or multilingual) can be a judge, and I imagine there are several already.

    I swear this tempts me to file something in my mom’s native Finnish in Fulton County. If they do not accept it, I’ll file a discrimination lawsuit on behalf of all the attorneys in Georgia with Finnish mothers who will have been discriminated against.

    Consider me the fighter for the rights of the Finnish-American Attorneys, a Finnish Michael X, if you will.

    “a Finnish Michael (Malcolm?) X, if you will.”

    Darth,

    Lay off of the cough syrup my man,

    Seriously, we’re worried about you.
