Crazy Laws & Lawsuits: A Collection of Bizarre Court Cases and Legal Rules by Robert Allen

Laura Ward, whoseFoolish WordsandFamous Last Wordswere so successful, takes a wickedly amusing look at our wacky, weird culture of litigation. Its entertaining and enlightening. Here comes the judge, and justice decrees that the law has never been funnier. In an age of litigation run rampant, lawsuits have become increasingly bizarre--not to mention downright silly. These are some of the strangest cases ever, some of which have received attention in the news and others that remain more obscure. Even the section titles, which include The Trouble with Neighbors, When Love Breaks Down, Fired!, Holidays from Hell, Road Rage, and Burglars who Sue, will raise smiles of expectation on every readers face. Here are just a few instances of legal weirdness: Kathleen Robinson of Austin, Texas, was awarded $780,000 after she broke her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running amok in a furniture store. The twist: the child was Mrs. Robinsons own son. A man left asleep on an aircraft after it landed sued U.S. Airlines for negligence. Apparently, he suffered mental and emotional distress when he awoke, because he assumed the plane had crashed and that he was actually dead. An In Brief overview at the head of every chapter provides a tantalizing taste of whats to come.
