For great JUSTICE.

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Legal humour, because I really need it now.

See, this (link from warmperky, many thanks! Includes all the actual cases, too!) is why I don't need Phoenix Wright. Law in real life provides all the crack I'll ever need.

Lowering the Bar Presents: The Case Law Hall of Fame
Washington v. Alaimo (S.D. Ga. 1996).
Plaintiff ordered to show cause why he should not be sanctioned for "filing a motion for improper purposes." The allegedly "improper purposes" are hinted at by the title of the pleading, "Motion to Kiss My Ass." Sanctions imposed.
[The motion proper is full of hilarious profanity which I sadly cannot repeat here, but the text of the case is linked! Go see!]

Bradshaw v. Unity Marine Corp. (S.D. Tex. 2001)
"Both attorneys have obviously entered into a secret pact--complete with hats, handshakes and cryptic words--to draft their pleadings entirely in crayon on the back sides of gravy-stained paper place mats, in the hope that the Court would be so charmed by their child-like efforts that their utter dearth of legal authorities in their briefing would go unnoticed."
[Oh God, I've seen pleadings like that]

Fisher v. Lowe (Mich. Ct. App. 1983)

We thought that we would never see
A suit to compensate a tree.
A suit whose claim in tort is prest
Upon a mangled tree's behest;
A tree whose battered trunk was prest
Against a Chevy's crumpled crest;
A tree that faces each new day
With bark and limb in disarray;
A tree that may forever bear
A lasting need for tender care.
Flora lovers though we three,
We must uphold the court's decree.

[And, the Asch-vs-Luke or YGO case]
Lodi v. Lodi (Cal. Ct. App. 1985).
"This case started when plaintiff Oreste Lodi sued himself in the Shasta County Superior Court."

Noble v. Bradford Marine Inc. (S.D. Fla. 1992).
This case, decided not long after "Wayne's World" was released, was remanded after an extreme close-up review of very excellent authorities revealed that the removal was most bogus and way improvident. Defendants ordered to "party on in state court."

Moore v. Moore (Mo. Ct. App. 1960)
In which a man's right to fish without female interference is recognized, but minor infringements on it are declared not to be grounds for divorce. The term "hillbilly" is found not to be an insult, at least when used in Southern Missouri.

United States ex rel. Mayo v. Satan and His Staff (W.D. Pa. 1971).
Civil rights case against Satan (and his staff). Case dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, and because of doubts over whether it could properly be maintained as a class action.

And for good measure:

A Nebraska senator apparently also sued God. Here's the lawsuit. Wikinews article here.

Oh law. |D
17th-Jan-2008 06:15 am (UTC) - why HELLO there Yoko. You scare Rossiu.
Or, as we say amongst fandom lawyers, LAWl.
17th-Jan-2008 06:22 am (UTC) - As well she should
Pfft. XD
17th-Jan-2008 06:27 am (UTC) - the implausibility of a fourteen year old girl with... well, THOSE. scares me.
I don't care if they say, "They count time differently over there!" YEAH EXPLAIN WHY SIMON IS, WHAT, EIGHT. TEN? And looks like that.

Somebody said malnutrition. ;)

My het OTP icon counters yours, only that I know you like Nia and Simon too. HERE:

17th-Jan-2008 07:34 am (UTC) - It's anime, darling. |Db
I got my OTP icon from Shi-chan! o/ And I have that art, you had it in your last GL art post! ♥ I also have way too many fanart of the two, aheh. |D
17th-Jan-2008 02:51 pm (UTC) - but there are still limits to which my disbelief can be suspended ~
*grin* It's so cute ♥ Same original!image as the one I'm using. They are such a cute couple, omg. ♥

I forget ;) It must be time to make a NEW GL ART POST! ;)

Oh, man. I need more fanart of those two, my fanart forays tend to stay around the guy character + other guy character territory. Though I love the art, I don't have the time+energy to go Simon-Nia site hunting. :) But any recs you have will be greatly appreciated! :D
17th-Jan-2008 06:09 pm (UTC) - It's better than MGS4 ridiculousness XD
This is the same image I used to try to show you that Simon/Nia were OTP back when you didn't believe in it. 8D

Ooooh, new art! ♥

I suggest the second paragraph of links, as I have browsed through them and have found excellent Kamina/Yoko and Simon/Nia fanart. :Db
18th-Jan-2008 01:38 am (UTC) - Metal Gear Solid 4?! AHAHAHAHA but MGS makes up for it with the GAY
I - wh - I used to not believe in Simon-Nia?

~ I seem to have forgotten who I was before Simon/Nia ;)

!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! This is brilliant! ;) I shall go and check it out! :)

AHAHAHA this is why I miss out on the Simon/Nia: I can show you AMAZING Simon/Viral and Simon/Rossiu sites, but my het fanart site knowledge for GL = 0%.
18th-Jan-2008 01:49 am (UTC)
Yup, you didn't believe in them. :(


M'actually all for het on almost ALL canons. I would acknowledge the gaaayyyy, but I can't actively ship it. Until Yamamoto/Gokudera. Loev them. ;;
18th-Jan-2008 02:07 am (UTC)
I really don't remember that time T_T I remember not shipping it, but did I really actively disbelieve?


My Reborn pairing-love is actually anything that gives me Tsuna Harem. ;) I'm into Tsuna/Yamamoto/Gokudera and Tsuna/Yamamoto and Tsuna/Gokudera and Tsuna everybody, really. Bit like I am with GL, except with Simon in Tsuna's position. ;) Strangely I'm not so into the Yamamoto/Gokudera, although it has eaten the hearts of many people I know :)

*giggles* I'm the exact opposite: if there's no slash in a canon, I won't go in! ;)
18th-Jan-2008 05:11 am (UTC)
Yeah, I meant you didn't SHIP them.


First and only gay pairing I ship, for srs. I held out for years, and was hit by the idiot pair. D:

Ahahahah! XD
17th-Jan-2008 05:35 am (UTC)
What the hell XDDDD I like the guy who sued Satan.
17th-Jan-2008 06:19 am (UTC)
What the hell, indeed ;)

A Nebraska senator apparently also sued God. Here's the lawsuit. Wikinews article here.
17th-Jan-2008 06:16 am (UTC)
Hey, wasn't there a case about a senator who SUED GOD in order to make a point too? (Get these motherfucking stupid civil suits out of my motherfucking court system!)

They should hold a party with the Satan-prosecutor. XD

17th-Jan-2008 06:20 am (UTC) - 0___0
I just commented on it in the comment above yours! XDD I was writing it as you were writing yours! ;)

Oh Pei Yi ILU ♥ *giggles*

17th-Jan-2008 06:54 am (UTC) - Re: 0___0
WE MUST BE PSYCHIC. And omg, haha, that Wired News article - COME OUT COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE. I guess if he'd been struck by lightning at that point at least it would have proven something...

Now we just need it be be made into a movie starring SAMUEL L. JACKSON, etc etc XD

(Though, hey, if I was filing a case about sexual assault and a judge banned me from using the words "rape" and "victim" I guess I'd be kind of annoyed. Re: the case that inspired it, according to WikiNews.)

I am very sad that the tree appeared to have lost the case. :( Did the poetry not MOVE the judge's HEART?
18th-Jan-2008 01:45 am (UTC)
Indeed we are ;) WE SHARE A BRAIN, PEI YI.

... wait, that means EVE can read my mind too!

The "Come out, come out wherever you are" makes me think of (1) coming out of the closet, (2) Lestat's invitation to all the vampires to reveal themselves. (Anne Rice's books)

Yeah, that judge should be smacked. REAL HARD. That is just not right.

Maybe the JUSTICE of efficiency moved the judge's heart more? ;) If he had given in, maybe all other plaintiffs would start writing in verse because they knew he was WEAK TO literature!

That, and he would probably be compensating for the world's forests in due time. ;)
18th-Jan-2008 04:00 am (UTC)

I hope the woman won that case, though signs indicate maybe not. Oy vey.

Ahaha, you know, the world would probably be a much better place if the courts of justice DID make us compensate all the trees we damage... XDXDXD

18th-Jan-2008 01:47 am (UTC)
Hee hee. ♥


... and this is, what, DEATH THREE, in as many posts?!
17th-Jan-2008 12:22 pm (UTC)
honey, you just made my day. XD thanks for the law crack!
18th-Jan-2008 01:48 am (UTC)
Always happy to please you, Professor! *beams*

You're most welcome! Glad you liked! And even gladder to have made your day! ;)
17th-Jan-2008 03:44 pm (UTC) - oh LAWd.
the tree poem is AWESOME! ♥
18th-Jan-2008 01:49 am (UTC) - now where are my flora icons
XDDD!! IT IS, ISN'T IT? I loved it to pieces! GLAD YOU LIKED IT TOO!
17th-Jan-2008 08:06 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, your law posts never fail to amuse me. How does one sue oneself? Or the Devil, for that matter? XD I did indeed hear about the guy who sued God to make a point, though the point was exactly the opposite of what I thought it to be in the end...

I take offense to the Phoenix Wright hate, though. It's a really fun game! Yeah, you lawyers nitpick everything (don't play the last case in the second game then, that made even me yell at the screen when Phoenix deliberately was trying to manipulate his confessed-guilty client to a guilty verdict), but it's really a hilarious mystery/adventure/total crack all in one. For the wacky characters alone, you should play it. There's a parody of just about every stereotypical anime character out there, heh.
18th-Jan-2008 02:04 am (UTC)
XD, yes! I saw the devil case and later went on to link the Suing God case just for equality. Law makes people do funny things.

Thank you! :) I'm glad you liked the cases and that they brought you as much amusement as they brought me! ;)

*grin grin grin* Phoenix Wright hate? I've not even turned on my Phoenix Wright hate yet! What you've seen is nothing! There is so much MORE vitrol and actual hate that I can call on!

;) I'm such a sweet innocent ball of love and fangirl light (XD) that I'm entitled to my soapbox of RAGE on the rare occasions that I'm up to it!

;) We're paid to find every weakness in a case. Don't hate us for doing our job even after office hours. :))))

It's really just not my type of game. I will just look at it from afar and call, "Have fun, everybody!"
