You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up!
by Gerrie Bishop
Although most litigation and law-related activities are sobering and worrisome, there are moments that are moving, funny, and sometimes absolutely unbelievable. Often people say things while under pressure or without thinking about how it sounds, and the result is usually humorous, embarrassing, or absolutely hilarious. At other times, the behavior of people facing the legal system is unexplainable, unacceptable, and sometimes just downright stupid. Such behavior only proves that people are unpredictable; and its true that You Just Cant Make This Stuff Up!
