Description - Guilty by Reason of Stupidity by Joel Seidemann
If the iPod is too loud, does Steve Jobs have to pay? Can Steven Spielberg cut a kid's hair without permission? Did Mickey Mouse and Fred Flintstone really cast votes for Ralph Nader? Unbelievable but true tales of more than one hundred court calamities, curiosities, and comical cases. Joel Seidemann's law career spans more than 25 years. He is currently a district attorney, but when he's not arguing on the city's behalf, he can be found researching the most bizarre, hilarious, and ridiculous cases of legal history. And now, thanks to Seidemann, we know why Lady Justice is blindfolded. Surely it's to hide her tears from the daily dysfunction and dalliances bestowed upon our country's judicial system. Remember the woman who claimed she found a finger in her Wendy's chili? Or the judge who attempted to make a courtroom decision by flipping a coin? Seidemann concisely chronicles more than one hundred tales of courtroom chaos and credulity that are destined to make even the most experienced judge chuckle between sessions. The perfect gift for newly licensed lawyers who just passed the bar, in addition to legal eagles currently in practice.
