Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit: Even more on "Much of (Maksym's) writing is little more than gibberish"

Referencing this ILB entry from yesterday, which quoted 7th Circuit Judge Diane Sykes' opinion in H. Stanard v. Keith Nygren, including this footnote beginning on p. 10 with:

[7] We acknowledge the unfortunate reality that poor writing occurs too often in our profession, but Maksym’s complaint is far outside the bounds of acceptable legal writing. See, for example, this 345-word sentence....
and then spans three pages, ILB reader (and supporter) Gary Price, Lewis & Kappes, remarks:
"It appears that Judge Sykes has not read James Joyce."
[More] "Or Marcel Proust," adds Mike Cavosie, Easter & Cavosie.
