From the incorrigible Judge Sparks to the benchslap factory known as the Seventh Circuit to the rural districts of Kentucky, the humiliating judicial opinions in this book are accompanied by an entertaining and wide-ranging discussion of the glories and vagaries of the U.S. legal system. You will laugh at the judicial take downs described in this book, but you should laugh nervously. After all, you could be next
"Benchslapped" is more than compilation of legal snippets. It contains substantial passages drawn from some of the most interesting and amusing benchslaps ever published, along with back-stories, commentary and analysis. These opinions address a broad range of malfeasance, including frivolous litigation, professional misconduct, discovery abuse, rules violations, poor work product and insulting the bench. While funny, "Benchslapped" also provides meaningful advice for attorneys hoping to avoid their predecessors' miscues. It is an excellent legal primer for new and aspiring attorneys and is a fun and thoughtful read for established lawyers. Although "Benchslapped" contains some legal terms, it is written so even readers with little or no legal background can enjoy the courtroom antics.
