George Carlin stated what the seven dirty words you can’t say on television are, and now a bill is being tossed around in Congress to prevent lawyers from saying certain words in court. These are considered the seven dirty words you cannot say in court. They are: torts, rebuttal, assets, briefs, dicta, penal, and subpoena. Another bill is being tossed around that says you can use any one of the words as long as no two of the words are ever used in the same sentence. Such as: You have a lot of Dicta in your Briefs. Nice Rebuttal.
