the death was tragic but what i would have given to see a drunkard careening around the airport and then being like OH, I KNOW, I'LL HIDE IN THE TRASH COMPACTOR.

that's one of the only torts cases i remember besides the piano teacher who played on his students.

Haha yeah I remember the piano one too.  That one seemed kinda creepy.  That was one of my favorite things about torts....the fact patterns were always so weird/funny that they seemed made up.  The first animals case we did was something like a dog at a circus scared an elephant, the elephant went nuts and trampled some circus midgets.

Yeah, that one's great.  I hope the Levmore part of the unit has similarly awesome cases.

Don't you feel terrible for the piano teacher, though?  It was probably a harmless gesture, though it does sound perverted when the trial court describes it -- something about making a glissando motion on her back, which caused her some sort of spinal injury.  Strange.

levmore did less cases but was equally funny in different ways. we were talking about some fact pattern where someone lit a second fire to conceal evidence of the first and it took me a while to grasp the concept. levmore immediately guessed i was an older child (i'm actually an only child) because i wasn't devious enough to come up with a plan to conceal my original fire.

birth order and fire extinguishers in your car (less so in the past few years :'() are a big levmore thing.
