Sweet

I received today a lengthy Order that can be summed up with the following excerpt:
Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED . . .

Plaintiff's Complaint is hereby DISMISSED in its entirety and the trial date previously set shall be stricken.
Since I represent the defendant, this is good. This Order was extra sweet for two reasons. First, the trial was scheduled to start on February 15 and my client was going to have to come here from England for it. Second, opposing counsel is a complete jerk and I take pleasure in his complete defeat. That probably makes me a jerk too, but I don't care right now.
