Legal Humor Roundup for November 29, 2011


I’m back after a nice Thanksgiving break and I’ve got another story about the misuse of the 911 system. Plus, Bruce Carton of Legal Blog Watch issues a ruling on the pile of shit tattoo case, suing your kidnap victims for breach of contract, and one of the worst forgeries submitted to a magistrate judge. It’s the happy hour law review for Tuesday, November 29, 2011.
