(Finally) the complaint in the Big East vs. ACC case

Findlaw has posted here the complaint in the Connecticut lawsuit filed by Virginia Tech and others to prevent the departure of Miami and Boston College from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

I don't know the pleading rules in Connecticut, but somehow I don't think this is a "short and plain statement" of the claim, nor does it follow the spirit of Virginia Rule 1:4(j), which says that "Brevity is enjoined as the outstanding characteristic of good pleading." (40 page pleadings would be unusually lengthy out here in the hills.)
