We’ve previously mentioned here and here that the Marvel Comics character She-Hulk is a practicing attorney. We’re not entirely certain what is occurring on the cover of She-Hulk #21, depicted above and published not too long ago in 2007. It appears, though, that She-Hulk has found herself in an argument with another lawyer in a conference room, perhaps at a mediation, perhaps at a deposition. We wonder if there are any local court rules that deal with confrontations with superheros at such events, though, and whether superheros are permitted to wear their costumes to court functions in lieu of more formal attire.
We here at Abnormal Use dig old pictures of court buildings. You might recall that we once recommended the Shorpy photo blog, which posts hi res photos of scenes past, usually a century old. This week, that blog posted a photograph of the Pulaski County Courthouse in Little Rock, Arkansas taken in 1905. Check it out here. If you like what you see, you’ll enjoy losing yourself in that site and seeing all the old photograph in its impressive archives.
Don’t forget! You can still vote for Abnormal Use in the ABA Journal Blawg 100! If you like what we do, please consider voting for us. You can do so here.
Many thanks to Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and the founder of the Overlawyered blog, for speaking in both Greenville, South Carolina (the location of the Abnormal Use home office) and Charlotte, North Carolina (home of another of our offices) this past week.
Finally, if you’re on Twitter, come say hi to us there! You can chat with us on that site by going here.
