Attorney Randy A. Rabenold thought someone was pranking him when he received a faxed opinion from the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The entire opinion by Judge Mike Eakin was in 27 rhyming couplets. In Busch v. Busch, Eakin penned lines like: “No longer living in marital bliss/ Busch says the judge was reversibly amiss/For not overturning the pre-nup he signed/Before he and his bride had their lives intertwined.” Rabenold said there was nothing funny about the divorce case, and that he didn’t understand why Eakin wrote such an opinion. Eakin doesn’t plan to write poetry in court regularly, “but if it gets a good reaction,” he says, “I might try it again.”
