The first book in this series, Weird Cases was published in 2009 and contained cases which had been dealt with by the courts in the previous two years. The parade of extraordinary human disputes and irregularities that are heard in law courts has, however, run on unabated since then.
More Weird Cases provides a further instalment of extraordinary cases from around the world that have featured in the author’s popular column in The Times Online.
The cases featured in More Weird Cases are those that truly stand out as odd, even among all the unusual dramas that challenge the courts:-
- the case of the man caught with a substantial quantity of marijuana who said in his defence that he only possessed the drug for the purposes of de-worming his ducks;
- a case where the court authorities didn’t accept that ‘being a cat’ was a proper excuse not to serve on a jury;
- and one where a man was granted a divorce because his wife thought about having sex with another man.
"You will find plenty to keep you entertained and laughing out loud ... while the book is compact, concise and easy to pick up, be warned you may not be putting it down for quite a while"
