Judge Hart is my new hero. What does this have to do with the movies, you ask? Read on.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacob P. Hart is a stickler for the rules. Spelling rules, that is. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, while Judge Hart allowed Bucks County lawyer Brian Puricelli to collect $300 an hour for his courtroom work on a recent case, Mr. Puricelli was limited to only $150 an hour for his writing -- because it was replete with careless typos. In addition to making repeated references to the "United States District Court for the Easter [sic] District of Pennsylvania," Mr. Puricelli listed the judge's name as "Jacon" Hart. "I appreciate the elevation to what sounds like a character in The Lord of the Rings," the judge wrote, "but, alas, I am but a judge." [from wsj.com]
