JUDGE: After having heard what I’m sure you think are well-reasoned and fully fleshed out arguments in favor of your position, I’ve decided to deny your request.
JUDGE: The Court has reasonably decided it has an interest in ensuring it has access to the evidence it needs to reach a responsible conclusion. Therefore, you are enjoined from doing anything that will result in the destruction of said evidence.
FED: Well, I guess the Court has spoken.
JUDGE: Yes it has. Now please turn over all the evidence that is relevant to this case so we can move forward.
FED: Can’t. We destroyed it.
JUDGE: … I just ordered you NOT to.
FED: This is embarrassing.
JUDGE: Embarrassing? Son, we just spent the last two weeks arguing over a court order you’ve already defied! What on earth would cause you to behave in such a fashion?
FED: Mostly? We were pretty sure we’d win.
