At a time when people are battling a global pandemic and coping with the “new normal” of social distancing and working from home (if you’re still working), it helps to keep things in perspective. If you don’t, you might get a reminder from someone like District Judge Steven Seeger of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, who issued a blunt rebuke to a plaintiffs lawyer seeking a TRO to halt sales of knockoff unicorn and dragon art.

Seeger reminded the lawyer that, “The world is facing a real emergency. Plaintiff is not.” Seeger’s benchslap went on to call the plaintiff’s proposed order “bloated” and “insensitive to others in the current environment.”
