New book in time for Halloween – “Undead in the Federal Courts”
This book is a collection of 11 opinions from the U.S. Federal Courts that include the word “undead”. Cases relate to Dungeons & Dragons, DC Comics’ “Dhampire”, free speech right to “House of the Dead” (with Judge Posner‘s opinion referencing “Dracula” and “Mortal Kombat”), and The Misfits trademark image. Plus racial themes: the execution of Troy Davis and the hiring of a high school football coach in Tangipahoa. Habeas for ineffective counsel, an interstate transport of digital child pornography using peer-to-peer, and also, insurance liquidation in Puerto Rico. This set of opinions is too few to be confident in any pattern, but they do present a character for the “undead” in federal courts. For advanced English readers with an interest in American law and/or the undead.
