Legal Opinions Even the non-Law School Student Can Love

In UNITED STATES ex rel. Gerald MAYO v. SATAN AND HIS STAFF, one Gerald Mayo decided to sue Beelzebub for violations of his Constitutional rights. The court's approach to the matter is both tongue-in-cheek and amusingly serious.

One of the many problems in Mr. Mayo's 1971 case is that he failed to tell the US Marshalls how they were to locate the defendant in order to serve him with a summons. Additionally, the judge hypothesized that the case should probably be a class action.

Here's list of humorous cases. You can find the full text of most of these cases by Googling the citation information at the end of the case title.
