A 1996 opinion by District Court Judge William T. Moore of Georgia prohibited Matthew Washington, a pro se inmate, from filing any future lawsuits or motions in any district court unless he first posted a contempt bond of $1,500. The bond would be returned after the adjudication of the case if Washington’s conduct throughout complied with the federal rules. In addition, before Washington could proceed in any matter, a judge would conduct a preliminary review to ensure the filing was not frivolous.

What prompted these measures? Washington had filed a civil rights suit against various judges, including Judge Moore. Pursuant to that lawsuit, Washington filed a “Motion to Kiss My Ass” in which he moved “all Americans at large and one corrupt Judge Smith to kiss my got damn ass sorry mother fucker you.” Judge Moore ordered Washington to demonstrate why he should not be sanctioned. Washington ignored the judge’s order. Judge Moore dismissed the lawsuit and imposed the above restrictions on further litigation.

Hancock County Jane Doe had suffered grievous injuries as a result of the hit-and-run: a broken neck, compression-contusion of the spinal cord, lacerated scalp, fractured right femur, lacerated liver, 21 broken ribs, deep lacerations of the right knee joint and left heel, and multiple deep abrasions to the abdomen, extremities, and face. There was hair resembling her own tangled in the fingers of her left hand. In 2013, the Hancock County Coroner obtained permission to exhume her remains to gather DNA to test against two missing women cases from Louisiana, Nelda Louise Hardwick and Faye Aline Self.
In December of that year, volunteers arrived in St. Joseph Cemetery and began digging under the gravestone marked 'Jane Doe'. To their shock, the body they exhumed was not Hancock County Jane Doe. The body, in addition to having a full mouth of teeth, was also male. As the county doesn't keep any burial records, investigators have no idea where Hancock County Jane Doe is buried. As a result, further exhumation plans have been halted.

In June 1951, Nicholas Ray walked in on his wife, Gloria Grahame, in bed with another man. This would have been bad enough for most people. To make matters worse, the person she was with was only 13 years old. To top it off, it was Ray’s own son from his previous marriage, Anthony, who’d returned home from military school. (Later, in 1960, the whole sordid affair somehow became even weirder when Gloria married Anthony.)
Needless to say, Ray was deeply upset. He tried to understand how his son could do something like this. He started reading books on the thoughts of the adolescent mind. He eventually discovered the long-forgotten "Rebel Without a Cause" script and rushed its production. On set, he said that he picked the movie to see why he had failed as a father.
The film would go on to make James Dean an icon.
