Welcome to the fifth installment of The Law Is A Ass!  I think this is the longest we've gone without an update (um, about 3 years?)  Yes I know this was supposed to be updated WEEKLY, what can I say, things have been a little busy lately.  Not to mention the fact that our feelings were a little hurt after all the negative feedback from our last update (everyone hates poetry, I guess).  If anyone from Westlaw or Lexis reads this and wants to help out with a complimentary account so we can research these cases, please let us know and we'll advertise your company!  Of the five following cases, you have to decide which are real and which are the product of an overactive imagination.   Click on the gavel next to each case to find out if you were right.  Enjoy!

Click here for the answer The defendant in this case testified that the reason why she struck the plaintiff's truck with her automobile was simply because she knew that God was driving her car, and more importantly, she knew that if she accelerated into the truck, she would be able to fly because Batman is able to fly.
