    Okay, this made me laugh outloud:

    As Lev Tolstoy aptly observed in the immortal opening lines of Anna Karenina, "All happy families are the same, every unhappy family is unhappy after its own fashion." [FN1] The unhappy fashion of the Keating family pits father and daughter against son and vice versa in a lengthy internecine struggle for control of the administration of the family-run closely held food distribution business. The denouement of the son's involvement was marked by his departure from the family business and his initiation of a competing enterprise. At issue in this jury-waived litigation is ... whether father and/or son engaged in unfair or deceptive trade practices or committed intentional torts while trying to throttle one another in the competitive marketplace of food distribution to military commissaries.

    FN1. [Editor's Note: This footnote, which repeats the quotation in the original Russian language, has not been reproduced here due to the unavailability of the necessary font.]

    Keating v. Keating, 17 Mass.L.Rptr. 241 (2003).

    The footnote is definitely what gets me. The judge continues in this witty fashion throughout.
