Suggestion for an Interesting Read

by Lidia Koelbel 24. April 2013 08:28

May I recommend a short, amusing and educational publication? It is a great poolside read with actual court opinions. The title is Judges Say the Darndest Things. Check its availability in your Law Library by clicking the title.

The sections Fred Shackelford compiled for the book might just clarify concepts for you.

See one of the selected opinions published in rhyme on Westlaw: Fisher v. Lowe, 333 N.W.2d 67 (Mich. Ct. App. 1983) (You will have to log into your Westlaw account). See also Irvin v. Smith, 654 N.E.2d 189 (Ohio 1993) (You will have to log into your Lexis account).
