Book Description

30 Nov 2011
The first book in this series, Weird Cases, was published in 2009 and contained cases which had been dealt with by the courts in the previous two years. The parade of extraordinary human disputes and irregularities that are heard in law courts has, however, run on unabated since then. More Weird Cases provides a further instalment of extraordinary cases from around the world that have featured in the author s popular column in The Times Online. The cases featured in More Weird Cases are those that truly stand out as odd, even among all the unusual dramas that challenge the courts: the case of the man caught with a substantial quantity of marijuana who said in his defence that he only possessed the drug for the purposes of de-worming his ducks; a case where the court authorities didn t accept that being a cat was a proper excuse not to serve on a jury; and one where a man was granted a divorce because his wife thought about having sex with another man. This book is a highly entertaining read for anyone who enjoys reading about the more bizarre aspects of human life that fetch up in the law courts at the beginning of the 21st century.

Product Description

Review

This book is pretty much what it says on the tin (or the cover): a collection of funny, random, weird and just plain bizarre cases...easy to read and it flows well, with each case linked to the next using clever hooks and outlandish statements to grab your attention and entice you on to the next case. You will find plenty of cases to keep you entertained and laughing out loud...while the book is compact, concise and easy to pick up, be warned you may not be putting it down for quite a while. --Young Lawyer

are my own judicial (ahem) directions.
Hilarious and oft-unforgettable collection of true gems - from the master or law, etymlogy and wit.

Onto the next....
