THIS WEEK'S CASE

Jessica gave away most of her possessions when she left for the Peace Corps -- including a video game console that went to her sister Eden. The system broke while under Eden's care, but she says she's not obligated to return a working system to Jessica. Is restitution due?

Plus, listen for a creative challenge issued to you, the listener, by the Judge for a chance to win a download of his new audiobook, THAT IS ALL.

Pac Man Fever

This is the first time I've ever recognized the cultural reference at the beginning of the show, no doubt because I had a close friend who suffered from Pac Man Fever in the early 1980s. Thankfully, she did recover completely, with few scars from her ordeal other than a permanent palm callous and somewhat googly eyes.

well..

That episode was....... giggly.
