The Law Is A Ass #441: Flash’s Step-Mom Is Tele-pathetic

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.

    Well, this could always become a plot-point in a future episode where a conviction is challenged and others are thrown out as a consequence. Not that I’m expecting such a development; that might actually be intriguing and lead to an interesting story-arc.

      Andrew, it won’t. They haven’t used this technique since that one episode, and I doubt they will again. I think the scenes were in the episode primarily to give Joe and Cecile something to do in the B plot and may not come up again.

    If this was useful enough, along with something like the Lasso of Truth, some might push for the Constitution to be amended so it was allowed.
