Cafasso v. General Dynamics C4 Systems (9th Cir. - March 24, 2011)

As an analogue to the conversational principle "Whoever first compares the other side to Hitler loses the argument," I hereby propound the following litigation principle:

"Whoever attempts to file a proposed pleading in excess of a full ream of paper will lose the lawsuit."

Proof positive.

Proposed complaint is 733 pages.  Nope.  You lose.  Both below and on appeal.
