Summary
"In addition to citing case law, judges have traditionally used recognized legal maxims or treatise citations to support their rulings. But today's judiciary is becoming more apt to use pop culture, modern music, as well as humor in their decisions. This book gives examples of how songs and their lyrics have influenced judges, provided themes for their decisions, and helped make existing law more accessible to lay persons. Mark W. Klingensmith examines the clever ways judges have used them to enhance their judicial writings and how modern day musical lyrics that have effectively become recognized legal maxims by the courts"--Back cover
