Legal Quote of the Day

Found in a letter in a case file:

“…attend court, bringing a ballista.”

For a moment, I got all excited. I had no idea that court cases were so violent – maybe that’s why they don’t televise them?

Then I realised that the curse of spellchecker had struck again.

Barrister: a sort of lawyer

Barrister: a sort of lawyer

 

Ballista: Roman siege weapon

    1. Thanks! 🙂

      I have this mental picture of one legal team wheeling a siege engine into Court, and the other team cowering behind a chap in a wig and a gown, who is thinking, “Damn, usually when they trust Spellchecker, they just turn up with a latte.”

Go on, comment... you know you want to!
