Social media is where you will find the most creativity from around the world. The social media world has become so entertaining that you can spend hours scrolling through your screens and you will never get bored. A while ago, the Facebook audience was enlightened with posts about incidents that court reporters had overheard. As the post went around, social media began to call it fake news and rejected any possibility of it being even slightly authentic.
That’s when some people contacted the lawyers and attorneys to find out if such hilarious stories ever occurred with them. And guess what? These truly ridiculous incidences that we are about to share actually did happen and you will be rolling around laughing at the end!
Story # 1: Defying The Law Like Defying Gravity
You would like to think that court is where most people are exceptionally worried regarding the way they behave, dress, and speak and everything else that comes along. However, that was the least worrying bit for this gentleman. During a child support case, this man actually refused to walk towards the judge from the swinging door.
Story #2: The Cat And Dog Fight In Court
Being an attorney is not an easy job and court is not a place where decisions are made as quickly as the judges would like them to be. There are often cases where the litigant will drag the case by bickering about what his or her ex-husband/wife did.
One thing leads to another and it becomes a storyline. In this one case, the judge was so fed up, he was recorded saying “Yes, I understand. And this is exactly why you are getting a divorce. Now get to the point!” Well, somebody had to say it.
Story #3: The Sneaky Ex-Husband
Once there was a man brought to the court because he was about to get arrested for not paying his child support as agreed during his divorce. This man thought it was okay to suddenly burst out of the room but when he almost made it halfway, he actually did the most unbelievable thing that will just make you think that television series are real.
Story #4: Real-Life Television Series
Being in the courtroom, having an attorney and being represented in front of the judge is no joke. You have to go through lengthy questioning, paperwork and so much more. But, for this one gentleman, answering the questions directly was not an option. While being questioned by the opposing attorney, this litigant managed to go ahead and reply, “Your Honor, I am actually offended by what the attorney has just said”.
We’re sure the judge was surprised enough that he went ahead and said “I am not interested in what you are offended by. Now answer what the attorney has asked you!” We’re sure the courtroom heard a lot of clapping after that.
Story #5: That Grandfather Who Was So Done In The End
If you have ever heard that courtroom is the place where things get really heated, you have heard absolutely right. In this one case called the Grandparents Visitation case which basically explored the rights of the grandparents to visit their grandchild, the grandfather was so done with his own son that he ended up taking his own cane and hitting his son across the head! Surely, that made it very memorable for everyone sitting in the court that day!
In the end, all you should know that emotions are pretty heightened during family law cases in the court especially when concerned with divorce, child custody and more. But, later one some incidences just make you burst into laughter instead!
