I sure got me some good readin' this week. Here are a few excerpts. Enjoy!

From a car accident case:

"We bear in mind that unchecked obsequiousness to an abstract rule can produce inaccurate and unjust results, the very banes [the statute] seeks to avoid."


From the case of the 6'5", 250 lb. male basketball player who accidentally broke a high school girl's arm while guarding her at practice:

"We do not see how the young man in question could be classified as
equipment, supplies, materials, facilities or resources."


This from the Aquila family reunion, which ended up in a lawsuit between cousins:

"Intentional tackling is not a customary part of the sport or activity of [potato] sack racing."

and

"It is clear from the record that this "roughhousing" between two grown men was done in a spirit of childlike competition between cousins, which unfortunately due to their respective ages and physical limitations, may negligently have caused some serious damage."


News Alert:
ICY AND SNOWY RAMPS IN OHIO ON DECEMBER 28 ARE SLIPPERY!
(The Sherwoods, who broke fast at Manhattan Deli with the Shads, were caught unawares.)

Ugh... this makes my head hurt. Who writes things like that with a straight face? Hilarious.
