“Considering the historic victory of the New Orleans Saints, the court finds that the trial will not be able to proceed as originally scheduled,” Judge Baneris wrote in his order delaying the start of the trial.
“The court takes judicial notice that Saintsmania permeates the City of New Orleans. Many prospective jurors for the Parish of Orleans, several attorneys involved in this litigation and court personnel plan on traveling to the promised land—the Super Bowl in Miami, Florida. The court recognizes that this pilgrimage enhances the chances of the Who Dat Nation to acquire the long sought-after Holy Grail—the Vince Lombardi trophy,” the judge wrote.
The case in question is Dano Paul Becnel v. Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, Inc. et al.
