From GG: Attorney Must Use Good English–by Order of Court

Just when you thought you heard it all–

I can’t even imagine what was going on with this

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
CASE NO. 17-23078-CIV-ALTONAGA/Goodman
JEAN NOEL,
Plaintiff,
v.
SDH SERVICES WEST, LLC and
HEALTHCARE CORPORATION OF
AMERICA,
Defendants.
__________________________________/
ORDER
THIS CAUSE came before the Court on Plaintiff’s Unopposed Motion with
Memorandum of Law to File a[] Second Amended Complaint [ECF No. 26]. Being fully
advised, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Motion [ECF No. 26] is GRANTED. The
Court notes Plaintiff’s proposed Second Amended Complaint [ECF No. 26-1] is replete with grammatical errors, including improper punctuation, misspelling of words, incorrect conjugation of verbs, and lack of apostrophes when required for possessive adjectives; sentence fragments; and nonsensical sentences. The proposed Second Amended Complaint is also an eyesore, with its formatting errors and spaces. These are some of the issues Defendant Miami Beach Healthcare Group Ltd. pointed out the Amended Complaint suffered from, in its Motion to Dismiss Amended Complaint [ECF No. 23].
Plaintiff’s counsel is permitted to file a second amended complaint as a separate docket
entry by November 14, 2017, so long as he certifies the pleading has been reviewed and
approved by a teacher of the English language — such certification is to be included in the notice Case 1:17-cv-23078-CMA Document 28 Entered on FLSD Docket 11/02/2017 Page 1 of 2

of filing the second amended complaint. Should these issues persist in Plaintiff’s filings,
Plaintiff’s counsel will be referred to the Florida Bar for counseling and any other action the Florida Bar deems appropriate.
Defendant Miami Beach Healthcare Group Ltd.’s Motion to Dismiss Amended
Complaint [ECF No. 23] is DENIED as moot. Defendants shall file a single, combined
response to the second amended complaint, or separate answers, as appropriate, within the time permitted by the Rules.
DONE AND ORDERED in Miami, Florida this 2nd day of November, 2017.
