Landlord Threatens Court so Tenant Takes Him to Court

What a splendid little example of calling someone's bluff. This landlord was completely unhelpful and thought their threat would let them illegally keep their tenant's security deposit. After getting caught lying in court, this tenant had their ex-landlord eating their stupid words. People sometimes win against their landlords, like this guy who got contractual revenge on his landlord or this person who staged a coup d'etat on their terrible landlord.

For all of you who hate lawyers, you can call them names in Germany.

It all started when a man was accused of misappropriating donation funds from a Berlin emergency help association for women. The prosecutor requested the court in Berlin for his arrest warrant, which did not sit well with his defense lawyer.

The legal eagle went on record and told the press how he felt about the prosecutor. "Mentally disturbed", "cuckoo" as well as "repulsive, malicious and simple-minded" were some of the gems.

Needless to say, the prosecutor did the lawyerly thing: he sued up to the Supreme Court, which ruled that words such as "cuckoo" are not slanderous.

This whole situation just really stinks.

A New Jersey man is facing charges after wiping a police summons "between his butt cheeks" and throwing it at an officer.

The 45-year-old man is reportedly facing a felony for purposely causing the officer to come in contact with bodily fluids during the incident this summer.

The indictment alleges that the man threw the summons in the direction of the officer after "placing it between his butt cheeks" and "wiping the paper in an upward and downward motion."

Dang, Jersey man. You're giving Florida man a run for his money.

TMZ has put together this excellent highlight reel of a recent 4 1/2 hour deposition hearing where the Biebs is being sued for allegedly ordering his bodyguard to beat up a member of the paparazzi.


The mashup includes all of Bieber's antics during the hearing which are likely to make your head spin. One of my favorite "arguments" he had during the hearing: "How could I ever be aware of something, knowing something? That's physically impossible."
