Product Overview

If you're looking for tales of loopy legal tomfoolery, courtroom comedy, kooky laws, and even loonier lawyers...then look no further. This is the book that provides answers to fascinating questions like:

How many lawyers have won Darwin awards?

Do British barristers ever wash their wigs?

Is it legal to keep treasure you find in a sunken ship?

Can someone driving a golf cart be convicted of a DUI?

What's the dumbest excuse ever given by a criminal?

Where has Clarence Darrow's ghost been sighted?

How did the court system make Typhoid Mary famous?

And of course, which Supreme Court judge had, among his other idiosyncrasies, an unnatural hatred for red nail polish?

The book that should be in every lawyer's waiting room (or bathroom), they can't bill you for reading it!

Here's what former Supreme Court Justices are saying about this book:

"Had me pounding my gavel."-RUFUS WHELLER PECKHAM

"Compelling evidence for lawyer jokes."-HORACE HARMON LURTON

"This is cruel and unusual punishment"-BUSHROD WASHINGTON
