Courts, Attorneys, Law, and Ephemera Thereof


This page is the culmination of a long time fascination with all aspects of the law, criminal and civil. Over the years, I've managed to collect some unusual items of legal ephemera, which I intend to post here in the near future.

I'll also endeavour to provide a few legally focused links that I've found to be interesting over the years, and pull together some amusing tidbits concerning offbeat litigants, defendants, and plaintiffs, outsize settlements, witty judges, legal edge-cases, and attorneys gone wild. My professional background is in software development and computer security, so many of the items are likely to have a somewhat tech-focused slant to them.

To kick things off, here are a few law sites that I read regularly, and which you may also find to be of interest:
