State Court Solomonic Sagacity, Part IV.

A tentative ruling in a case not mine:

"ARGUMENT REQUIRED on this motion to quash for lack of jurisdiction.

"‘The time has come'
To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings.’ (Lewis Carroll)
And of how it is that Defendant can argue that Orange County is not the proper jurisdiction for this case when this same defendant argued in Maryland that Orange County was the proper jurisdiction and was able to convince the Maryland court to dismiss without prejudice because Orange County was the proper jurisdiction!"
