Top 5 Weirdest Things in Carter Page's Latest Filing in Lawsuit Against DNC [View all]

Carter Page filed a lawsuit against the DNC, Marc Elias and the DNC's law firm back in October. Here is a link to the original petition filed in that case https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=2179974

The DNC has moved to dismiss and Carter Page file a reply brief that is hilarious. Evidently Carter Page could not find a lawyer and wrote this brief himself. There is a maxim that a person who represents himself has a fool for a client. Here is a fun article with the five top dumb things in Carter Page's brief https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/top-5-weirdest-things-in-carter-pages-latest-filing-in-lawsuit-against-dnc/

The filing contains some cautionary tales for pro se litigants.

Carter Page has submitted this filing all by his lonesome–or, at least, without help from a named attorney. This is generally advised against in high-profile cases, especially those in federal court. While Page makes clear that he is currently studying the law, his inexperience shines through in ways large and small. References to legal standards are occasionally clumsy, rendered fancifully and off-base–or, as noted above, simply missing altogether–and Page repeats the same typo some 80-plus times.
There’s also several instances of languages atypical of federal court filings.

The Page filing makes the following broadside generalization: “During the months before the 2016 Presidential election, the Defendants committed torts previously unseen in the history of the United States and without precedent in the annals of American law.”

There’s also this:
The Defendants unluckily gambled in 2016 with high hopes that some of the defamatory dirt spread with their defamatory Dodgy Dossier deck might fertilize. Now, the [motion to dismiss] doubles down on their imprudent bets.

I have looked and I could not find any reference to any law school where Page is attending. Does anyone know if Page is actually in a law school?
