Where There's Life, There's Lawsuits: Not Altogether Serious Ruminations on Law and Life
ECW Press, 2003 - 298 ページ
If the police sniff at your door without a warrant, is it an illegal search? If the mortuary loses your cremated remains, can your family get compensation? Is it a crime to try to pick an empty pocket? Is Yiddish displacing Latin as the second language of our law? And exactly why is it that Robin Hood's merry men "could not have frequently been merry?" Our experiences with the law show how we cope with the most dramatic, poignant, and ridiculous moments of our lives. Judgments in lawsuits can make vivid, even inspirational literature, shining their high beam on whether we have demonstrated grace under pressure. "Where There's Life, There's Lawsuits" collects Jeffrey Miller's 20 years of research and bemusement as a legal historian and columnist for "The Lawyers Weekly", chronicling this intersection of law and the human tragicomedy.
