I thought I’d throw up some legal stories of the week. Maybe you’ll react a bit. If your computer is able to see it, you’ll see that Michael reacts with a laugh. Some are just head-shakers!
Our first news-legal story comes from Ocala, Florida. A self-described homeless man was arrested for trying to pass counterfeit $20 bills. Apparently they were poorly copied. He claimed that he just simply used a copier/printer. Do you find it strange that he got caught at the Dollar General Store.
Next Story. Adjustable Ottoman Beds have been recalled. The notice states that when the ottoman is converted to a bed, and any weight is put on it; it can collapse. No, I don’t think that’s funny and neither does Michael. Although, when I read the article, the advertising does focus on a picture of two smiling people in bed with the big question, “Click here for the best night’s sleep you ever had”.
That advertisement did strike as a bit odd. I guess you just shouldn’t try “clicking there” while converting that ottoman to a bed. Is it hard to “return” a bed? Big Box?
Next, In 2011, lawyers sought to set aside a guilty verdict in a New York tax fraud case. Now the NY Law Journal reports that the Federal Judge has ordered the arrest of the former juror relating to that motion.
Suspended lawyer Catherine M. Conrad was questioned about her criminal history during jury selection voir dire. Conrad had been suspended for charges stemming from alcoholism issues, before ending up on the jury. Apparently she did not tell that during questioning. She also failed to respond in admitting that her husband was a convicted felon.
No, you’re right, that’s not funny. It’s more in the “that is odd” because she really must have wanted to serve on that jury.
One final note, two people from Newport News will have their case heard on the Friday show of Judge Judy. So, if you are near the TV during the time that your market shows Judge Judy, you can see a case about a lady who sold a man’s 4 tires.
Apparently, he was kicked out as a renter and left the tires behind. She finally got tired of the tires just sitting in the backyard and she sold them. Now, he wants his tire money. They are going to get some Judge Judy justice! That should be worth some kind of reaction… shouldn’t it?
For pic o’, did you ever wonder what minions look like?
See, I think that’s funny. But, the blog needs to be a buffet for the weekend…. a little something for everyone if you don’t like that crowd.
So, how about a cat skiing?
