Benchslapped is more than compilation of legal snippets. It contains substantial passages drawn from some of the most interesting and amusing benchslaps ever published, along with back-stories, commentary and analysis. These opinions address a broad range of malfeasance, including frivolous litigation, professional misconduct, discovery abuse, rules violations, poor work product and insulting the bench. While funny, Benchslapped also provides meaningful advice for attorneys hoping to avoid their predecessors' miscues. It is an excellent legal primer for new and aspiring attorneys and is a fun and thoughtful read for established lawyers. Although Benchslapped contains some legal terms, it is written so even readers with little or no legal background can enjoy the courtroom antics.
