I was going to do something else, but then came across THIS quiz, via pnh:


YOU ARE RULE 8(a)!

You are Rule 8, the most laid back of all the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  While your
forefather in the Federal Rules may have been
a stickler for details and particularity, you
have clearly rebelled by being pleasant and
easy-going.  Rule 8 only requires that a
plaintiff provide a short and plain statement
of a claim on which a court can grant relief.
While there is much to be lauded in your
approach, your good nature sometimes gets you
in trouble, and you often have to rely on
your good friend, Rule 56, to bail you out.

YOU ARE 28 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1332!

You are not a Federal Rule of Civil Procedure at

all: you're the statute that allows the

federal district courts to hear diversity of

citizenship actions! You were drafted with

the idea that an out-of-state party may be

unduly prejudiced by appearing in a foreign

state. Sometimes people may think that

you're strange, and they try to minimalize

your effects by requiring an amount in

controversy and by being especially strict on

the requirements for diversity. Also,

attorneys often use you for "forum

shopping" and other undesirable

behavior. But there's no getting around the

fact that you're so darned loveable! Your

delightful quirkiness entertains friends and

law professors alike, and although others may

grumble about your eccentricities behind your

back, they're always talking about you, so

you must be doing something right. Let's

face it, the world could use a few more 28

USC 1332's!

I think this quiz is so funny because it's such an abstruse subject, but still has all the goshwowness of regular quiz write ups. Except, correct spelling. But I like it. Almost as good as "What Spring-Verlag Master's Level Mathematics Text Are You?" of a few years ago. (I think that's what it was called.)
