Whiplash!: America's Most Frivolous Lawsuits
It used to be that when someone spilled hot coffee on their lap, they called themselves clumsy. Nowadays, they call a lawyer. America's win-the-legal-lottery mentality is humorously presented in Whiplash!, a compendium of the most outrageous real-life lawsuits ever concocted by greedy, legal minds.Whiplash! is guilty of humor targeting a court system out of control. Guided by legal sleazeball Tony Buttafony, Esq., chapter one: Lawsuits Made Easy hilariously demonstrates the finer points of spilling hot coffee on your lap and other techniques for cashing in, in court. The book also boasts the funniest legal jokes, most outrageous lawyer license plates, a legalese dictionary, and, of course, a caseload of comical lawsuits. You'll be the judge as you read true cases like the couple who sued after getting hit by a train while having sex on a subway track, or the man who sued a stripper after getting hit in the head by her breasts, and the criminal who sued his warden for a bad haircut. Whiplash! is fairly divided into twelve chapters that include ludicrous lawsuits about sex, medicine, advertising, sports, and celebrities. A great gift for law students and for the rest of us who have been waiting for a book that targets people we love to hate-lawyers!
