The Law Is A Ass # 312: The Superior Spider-Manslaughterer

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Going just from memory, it seems to me there have been developers/contractors in NY whose knowingly shoddy cranes and knowingly unsafe work conditions have killed workers, and they get away with it. There’s always some loophole for the well-connected. Maybe SpOck’s technically a corporation or something, so there’d be only civil charges or something else like that.

    As to the first point, aren’t there emergency condemnations? Not saying that’d be right, obviously, but just that people determined to get their way can always find some technicality.
