If you frequent this site, you know we try to showcase legal themed comic book covers on Fridays. Let us tell you this: that gets more and more challenging each week! So, depicted above is Infamous: Lindsay Lohan #1, published not so long ago in September of 2011 by Bluewater Comics (which often produces quickie celebrity bio titles like these). On that cover, we see the troubled former starlet taking her mug shot about as seriously as she likely takes everything else in her difficult, difficult life. Whatever the case, we doubt the folks in California would allow a prisoner to be so cavalier during the mug shot process.
As you may recall, in the past, our own Frances Zacher has written a bit about the legal issues involving driverless cars. In a post called “Autobots – First Casualty,” the author of the Living the Meme blog attempts to pick up where Frances left off and explore the issue in further detail. Check it out.
Get this! Accordingly to The Lariat, Baylor Law School – our editor Jim Dedman’s alma mater – recently hosted a “People’s Law School.” At that event, there was a section dedicated entirely to the McDonald’s hot coffee case! Had we been in Waco that day, we would not have missed it!
Speaking of our editor, last week he was hanging out in Philadelphia on a vacation of sorts and he met and hung out with Max Kennerly, the author of famed Litigation & Trial law blog. It was a great time, we hear. However, if you had overhead their conversation about blogs, Twitter, and BBSs, you would have thought they were huge nerds.
Oh, and you may remember that we’ve been hinting for a while that we have some big plans in store for you, our dear readers, in 2012. Today is the last Friday in February. In just a few weeks, in mid-March, you’ll see our first such blogging project of note. Be forewarned: it’s a doozey!
