There is such a thing as too much fun . . .

    Jeremy Blachman of Jeremy’s weblog has composed catchy ditty on the joys of civil procedure when applied to romance. This is an absolute riot…



      “You Have Jurisdiction over Me”

      (The guy sings)

      In civil procedure, I sit next to you

      And stare at you from your head to your International Shoe

      You made my heart skip a beat when your Long Arm touched my casebook

      I stared at your picture for three hours in my facebook

      And though you’re from a different land

      I hope you’ll give me your hand

      So I can serve you process

      I want to purposely avail

      Of what makes you that one female

      No matter what the law says

      This is procedure, not contracts

      And we have minimum contacts

      So despite our diversity

      In your court is where I want to be

      You have jurisdiction over me

      (The girl sings)

      In civil procedure you sit next to me

      And yours is the only laptop I ever need to see

      Watching you play solitaire has shown me what real lust is

      If we’re not together it won’t be substantial justice

      You are the one guy in this school

      Who’d make me break a fed’ral rule

      Don’t 12-b-6 dismiss me

      You look at me and my heart skips

      The venue’s here on my two lips

      You see, I’m asking you to kiss me

      This is procedure, not contracts

      And we have minimum contacts

      So despite our diversity

      In your court is where I want to be

      You have jurisdiction over me

      (They sing together)

      We’ve satisfied International Shoe

      And my Erie choice of law is you

      And though the federal question’s unclear

      It’s worth more than seventy-five thousand dollars

      To have you here

      This is procedure, not contracts

      And we have minimum contacts

      So despite our diversity

      In your court is where I want to be

      You have jurisdiction over me
