The Law's Strangest Cases covers the Mediaeval days of trial by ordeal or battle, to death by ducking stool, burning at the stake, or similar, right up to today's worst excesses of litigation. As well as the more well-known gruesome murder cases, Peter Seddon delves into all legal disciplines such as crime, libel, negligence and unfair dismissal, to find bizarre goings on through five litigious centuries.
