Bashing the U.S. legal system is a popular pastime. However, I often see news from other countries that confirms that the U.S. really hasn’t got a lock on silly legalism. Here’s one from Canada where a 12 year old child of divorced parents got her court appointed lawyer to petition the court to overturn her father’s decision to ground her. Her lawyer should have told her to get a life because little girls don’t always get what they want. Instead this lawyer wasted the court’s time by filing the petition. Worse yet, the judge granted the petition and overturned the grounding. Guess that kid knows whose the boss now and it isn’t her father.
