Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #404

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.

    Great column as always. Your expertise is invaluable. The people who put on a Columbo podcast called “Just One More Thing” are looking for someone with your knowledge.

    Give them a buzz. Their site is

    One of the podcasters is John Morris and he’s written a book about obscure superheroes called “The League of Regrettable Superheroes”.

    Check out the site and maybe be a guest podcaster who can talk about the legality of some of Columbo’s moves.

    Again, interesting column. Keep up the good work.
