Famous Legal Case in Various Formats

It all started because I was looking for a funny t-shirt.  Okay, well a t-shirt I think is funny – most lawyers would get the Palsgraf reference anyway.  For those of you who haven’t gotten that far in Torts (or who blocked out all memory of Palsgraf v. Long Island Railroad Co.) maybe this Lego reinactment will ring a bell (or a scale, whatever). 

Or maybe seeing it recreated by Peeps is better?  If you don’t like proximate cause, they have one on multiple tortfeasors – Summers v. Tice.

The Beavis and Butthead version doesn’t really explain the case, but is kind of funny.  To really get the case – go to one of the Library’s databases CVN and sign up (it’s free!) to get the edited case, the holding, and an audio you can listen to of the language of the case itself.
