I received these quotes in an email. I find them believable, but who knows.

Fwd: Court
These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are
things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down

calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

Those sound like jokes but here is what my wife said in court once. She got a ticket for making a left turn where there is a sign that you can't turn between certain hours. She was going to tell the judge she did not realize what time it was and she thought it was all right to turn. Instead the judge asked her if she made the turn she said yes. He asked her why and she said she did't see the police officer. Everybody started laughing even the judge. He let her off with court costs and told her to be more observant next time.

I was in court once for some traffic violation and they had a hearing for some black guy whose girlfriend had accused him of rape.

She said "I didn't want to do it 'cause I was administratin' "

Sorry PQQLK9, you have to admit it's funny /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
