Your honor, if they'd been providing a quality legal education, there's no way I'd have been stupid enough to file this suit in the first place, is there?!

No one is more delusionally self-assured than a third-year law student.

He will make a fine state rep one day. Maybe he could even sue his way into congress.

Ah yes, he believes that he is in the right because the school did not fulfill some (real or imagined) required technicality. Nevermind the fact that he's not competent to be a lawyer.

The school is trying to save you money, bud. Classes don't mean jack when you can't pass the bar exam.

ManateeGag: maybe law school isn't for him.

I'm not sure pre-school is for him

I say a lawsuit should be required to be awarded a law degree.

Apparently the course was on how to avoid filing frivolous lawsuits.

So the school required him to re-enroll in the course. Millikan, according to his legal filing, then went home for the summer to Washington state, where he worked for the State Attorney General's office. He says that over the summer he heard nothing more about the demand that he take "Civil Procedure II" a second time. Due to this "silence" on the part of the school, Millikan assumed that the school had simply given up on requiring him to retake the course.

Sounds like he really needed to pass that course.
