Just Add Nuts

Sooner or later, all litgators encounter pro se opponents who make them blow a brain gasket.

Meet Banana Lady. She delivers singing telegrams in full fruitcake fruit costume, then sues anyone everyone who records her performance. Sanctions do not deter her, and she appeels appeals if she loses.

Here is a unanimous (not banana split) decision from the 7th Circuit where Judge Posner tells Banana Lady to quit monkeying around. Nice nuts-n-bolts discussion of copyright principles, then Posner delivers a delicious tongue lashing to La Senora Plátano.
