    One thought on “Law and Disorder: Absurdly Funny Moments from the Courts”

    1. I found a handful of the stories funny. The highlight of the book to me, were the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. Over all it was not as funny as I was expecting.

    2. I only found a few of these excerpts to be funny. For the most part I had to force myself to finish reading. I enjoyed the last book I read by Charles M. Sevilla that was similar to this one. On a positive note the pictures and famous quotes in the beginning of each chapter were entertaining. Too bad the people quoted in the courts left me disappointed in people in general.

    3. This is a fun read containing a number of amusing cartoons and excerpts from actual trials and legal processes that are for the most part very funny. There were a few I didn't understand, but then I'm not a lawyer, so perhaps that is to be expected.

    4. Some of these had me cracking up--especially the titles of the little blurbs. Sorry to admit, by page 38 I was exhausted reading all the legalese. Drawings were great.

    5. Most of it was funny. Some of them I got tired of reading lol It was just really silly fun thoughI enjoyed it.

    6. I won this book through a giveaway. I had read one of the previous books in this series, Disorder in the Court. Mr. Sevilla collects actual court transcripts that range from mildly amusing to the outrageously funny. This newest compilation of court transcripts is divided in sections by the participants of a case: judge, jurors, defendants, district attorneys, and defense lawyers. Most of the excerpts are very short, many only a few sentences. There are some that are longer, and a few take up a [...]

    7. Firstly, I would like to say that I won an ARC of this book through a giveaway, and it had some typos. A bit annoying, but understandable.This book was a quick read (192 pages) and far from what I expected. Most of it is in form of conversations between two court members, and each tidbit of humor is contributed by a reader. Some of it was vulgar (do not read if you are easily offended), and a lot of it was consisted of very poor comedic attempts. Speaking for myself, as I don't laugh very easily [...]

    8. I thought the book "Law and Disorder" wasn't what I expected it would be because it wasn't that funny to me. All it talked about were stories that happened in the court that were so called "hilarious". For example how is making marijuana in your bathroom without anyone noticing funny, because I think its ridiculous. Another thing about the book I didn't like is that the stories inside were shorter than I expected because I thought each story would be a few pages long, but no. Each story was at l [...]

    9. I am sorely disappointed in this book. It seems that the author has combed the bottoms of the barrels in finding things that are even slightly humorous to put into his third book. I was looking forward to more of what the front covers says would be 'absurdly funny moments from the courts; - unfortunately I did not get that.It seemed to me that only one third of the direct quotes were even slightly humorous. What a shame to have wasted a couple of hours on this book - the only redeeming quality i [...]

    10. I won this book through the 'First-Reads' giveaway program.This book wasn't really what I was expecting, I was hoping for chapter-length funny stories from the courts, instead, the stories are more twitter-length. There were some funny parts, and I think this is would be a good toilet book in the best sense of the word -- read it real quick when you're sitting on the loo with nothing better to do. I enjoyed the book, not sure if I would recommend it though.

    11. This is a Giveaway. This book was a treasure of humor and judicial monkey-business. I really liked the soundbites regarding those facing the bench as well as those on the bench. Worth the read. Although the reader's copy I won via GoodReads giveaway program had a number of errors, I still found it a good book to give a lift to a persons day.

    12. This collection of incidents from the author's "Great Moments in Courtroom History" column collects the highlights, or lowlights, of performances by defendants, prosecutors, counsel, judges, jurymen, and witnesses. Opinion may differ on whether they are truly inimitable, but it would be unwise to try to imitate them when the occasion serves.

    13. This was a very funny collection of the absurd statements that crop up in court documents. I read about this book on Giveaways, but didn'the win a copy. This would make a great gift to anyone with a little legal background.

    14. Short clips and stories of Law and Disorder as the title suggests. Good for taking with when you have appointments because it is easy to put down in between the stories. Made me laugh out loud many times.

    15. Law and DisorderMost of the book has super funny, laugh out loud court scenarios. The final pages have me wanting to buy author's previous versions to see if they are just as funny, or funnier. I think this would be a great tension reliever for attorney/court waiting areas.

    16. I won this book from a giveaway, and I found parts of the book to be quite fun to read. It does take a bit to make me interested and to laugh. Some parts did make me chuckle, which is why I gave the book a three star rating!

    17. This is a collection of Chuck Sevilla's Great Moments in Courtroom History, many absurd and hilarious courtroom anecdotes.

    18. Very funny! Those in the legal field will especially enjoy and appreciate this compilation of hysterical court records.
