Remember cute little Knut the polar bear cub in Berlin?

Well, he isn’t little or cute anymore. In fact he’s a big honkin’ bear and plans are afoot to send him to the zoo that owns him…the Neumünster Zoo in Schleswig-Holstein.

A French appeals court says voodoo dolls of President Sarkozy can stay on sale – but must carry a label saying they are offensive to him.

Sounds like the judge has been inhaling too

An Irish judge, one James O’Conner, has thrown out two drunk driving cases because the defendants may have inhaled alcohol from the steam of their own urine and skewed a breath test for alcohol.

A New Gloucester, Maine man will have some time to ponder where his legal education went awry as he sits in jail, charged with being a habitual offender, driving on a suspended license and violating bail conditions, and, probably, attempting to elude an officer.
