Go to http://taxprof.typepad.com/ and read about the lawyer who filed his tax return with Tax Court, rather than a motion.....by mistake

That is hillarious. I'm sending it to some of my lawyer friends as well.

That is funny, I love this: “[T]he only reason we have younger associates around here is so that they can keep on top of this techno-Blackberry stuff,” bellowed an obviously frustrated Simpson. “Matt or Mark or whatever his name is, really made us look like rank amateurs with this whole filing. If the Generation Z kids can’t e-file correctly how does the court think this whole thing’s going to work?"

I can sympathize with Mr. Simpson: that's what these young kids are for, techo knowledge. Half the time, I feel like I'm a relic. When I started, not that long ago in the scheme of things, they actually had a hand written docket in Fulton County, GA, our most populated county. When you filed something with the court, you had to wait for the clerk to open a huge book, and record the filing of the pleading before he placed it in a basket for processing.

Now, these young kids don't even get to know the court personnel on that level. It's a shame because you can learn a lot about the system from these people.

The young associate in this case was quite lucky that this was not a time sensitive pleading that he "mis-filed".
