    It seems only a matter of time for that to happen ,however judges are mostly a tolerant lot. They do seem to hold out for quite a while before they blow up.

    He is filing Pro se (he has no attorney). It seems that filing lawsuits without legal council does have it's drawbacks, such as not having anyone to tell you that it does require funds to serve the people you are suing.

    He has to know that already. He's been involved in an awful lot of lawsuits, often pro se from what I can tell (Google or a search on here will get you plenty of examples).

    One would THINK that he would "know that" ,however I certainly wouldn't bet on it. Learning from experience and behaving in a thoughtful and considered manner don't seem to be hallmarks of Mr. Buck's Per se lawsuits or his criminal record.

    However the interweb is a wonderful thing and we know Mr. Buck can use it.

    Mea culpa -- obviously I didn't think things through any more than he did

    Not at all!

    You were thinking as an intelligent and rational person and thus had no expectation that someone else , who files many Pro se lawsuits, would not have the sense to learn from experience, as you would have done (if you were a serial litigant).

    Perhaps the Dragonharte, in his zealous and lofty pursuit of justice, sometimes overlooks the petty details. Perhaps the Dragonharte was hoping the judge would do the same?

    Clearly you people don't understand his genius. Maybe you'd understand better if you'd allow your horses to spout water, like Buck does.

    Agree with much of the above, but at the same time it doesn't hurt to rattle the cage of such an august body as the AQHA.
