    Yeah, that guy was a real asshole, he told the judge that he couldn't put the muzzle/control on the dog because he was handicapped, he was bitten by a rattlesnake and couldn't use his left hand. However, shortly after that he could use that crippled hand to pick his nose and to handle and manipulate several sheets of paper. What a lying jerk!

    Yeah, but if the cray-cray defendant actually had pictures of cats in their neighborhood that looked like her cat (as she claimed she had) instead of going on line and getting one generic black and white cat picture, she might have done better.

    That dumb ass if he doesn't clean up his act is going to shot dead. The grandfather would have had every reason and right to use deadly force to protect his granddaughter.

    At least she didn't go with pig tails.

    Today's new case was geezer versus geezer with the addition of a daughter. I enjoyed this one, the basic complaint was not novel but the details were more interesting than usual. (Just for the record, I am well into geezerhood myself). It turned around from my initial impression as we heard more and more about (and from) the plaintiff daughter. JJ got her pegged pretty well, she was sort of cray-cray and really an obnoxious jerk. Arrested and convicted (with a plea bargain admission of guilt) for using a boom box to harass neighbor loudly enough that the police on the scene took action against her. I really believe she is a shit-stirrer, I wonder if the geezers would be able to get along without her in the mix. Outcome: plaintiff gets one dollar for defendant's trespassing, defendant gets $3,000 for plaintiff's harassment. P.S. Not very fond of JJ's new hair myself.

    So what's the problem? Many of the litigants we see on these shows (not representative of the general population) would see nothing unusual about this. When COPS did a local show (ended quickly, we weren't exciting enough) they were at a DUI checkpoint and arresting a guy who was visably drunk, turned out he had NINE previous DUI convictions! He was only in his thirties, why in the hell was he not in jail or prison?

    Apparently, this was a consistent continuation of her career prior to that. Sometimes you have to realize that YOU are the problem.

    Actually, he called it compressed cardboard. I had wood laminate for ten years, it was good looking, very durable, but had to be replaced after a hurricane resulted in flooding the floor, something that laminate does not take well. Harvey again made a complete ass of himself outside, asking a young lady with a five pound dog if her dog could make holes in wood flooring, not quite the same as an active 80-100 pound dog. Several of the pictures did show the laminate raising up (and stained) on the ends of some boards; the only way I ever saw that was with water damage so I believe that the flooring was ruined. Unless the plaintiff had some proof of the place leaking, I think it is more likely than not that the plaintiff damaged, it either by letting his dog piss on the floor a lot or spilling liquids and not cleaning it up. Again, we see a so-called "service dog" that is not trained and not controlled by its owner.

    Not necessarily intelligence, but lack of familiarity with american laws and rental common practices, difficulty in explaining their complaints, and general discomfort in confidently asserting their rights in an unfamiliar culture.

    The blonde braids with long dark roots annoyed me, the braids themselves not at all

    The plaintiff on the ancient VHS/DVD player repair kept repeating that when he got it back, he found out that the DVD part would no longer play and record. He was very clear that he was complaining about the DVD part not recording. I never saw a combined VHS/DVD player that could record DVDs, I am fairly sure that they never made them, the combined VHS/DVD machines were an awful idea and didn't stick around long. If he wants to burn DVDs he needs more than a DVD player, but he seemed like someone who just won't listen to anything he doesn't want to hear.

    Well, actually most flights follow a straight line on a globe, it only looks like a curved path based on mercator projections, the shortest routes are along the great circle routes.. There are also prevailing winds so that airlines choose the route that is the most economically vialble. But JJ is still completely wrong on her analysis based on simple geometry.

    Actually, I think she did - it looked like a removable cosmetic gold grill on her lower front teeth. We have seen a few grills in court, usually from guys who spent more on the 24 inch spinner wheels than they spent on their cars. I don't think any dentist would have done what she had, and it has been a while since I got crowns (back teeth only) but I had a very experienced dentist and asked for the most durable type of crowns and took his advice on gold (for the record, I have 5 large crowns, most of them over 20 years old, only had to have one re-cemented). I also recall that back then the porcelain crowns were slightly less expensive than gold.

    Even JJ would understand about skidding or sliding into an object (if she would actually listen). However, she would never believe that in a sharp low speed turn, the middle of your car moves forward and sideways. simple geometry - oh never mind, that is terra incognita to JJ.

    Well, to be completely thorough, Newton did not account for relativistic effects. On the other hand, none of her cases involve getting to significant fractions of the speed of light. Can you imagine trying to explain that to JJ?
