As you know, we here at Abnormal Use adore legally themed comic book covers, so we had to share the cover of Litigious Tales pictured above. It features Groot, a member of The Guardians of the Galaxy, who received massive attention in the film of the same name released this past summer. (If you didn’t see it, see it out. Seriously). The joke is that Groot can only say the phrase “I am Groot.” So, of course, what kind of lawyer could he make? The art is by Francesco Francavilla, and it was apparently prepared for Marvel’s 25th anniversary issue (according to Francavilla’s Tumblr). Thanks to reader Ryan Steans for the tip!
Mental Floss offers us “11 Legal Cases with Crazy Names.” They found some good ones, so take a look.
Sigh. Just two more months of Westlaw Classic. Alas.
Thanks to everyone who came out to see Abnormal Use writers Nick Farr and Jim Dedman present their McDonald’s hot coffee CLE in Charlotte this week!
