I work for a law firm and the word floccinaucinihilipilification appeared in a Petition we received. Does it have a meaning?

Welcome to you, Diana, and who filed that petition?
Nobody but Tsuwm could possibly know that word!
But then, his name, after all, is Sue-'em!

I think the word is quite well-known, if only from being cited so often as the longest word in the language.

quite well-known, but still only defined by two of the OneLook resources. (guess which two ;)
