Judge John Hodgman Episode 185: Campering with the Evidence

| 6 comments

Dale brings the case against her husband, Shawn. Dale bought a small trailer, intending to convert it to a food truck for her business. She's figured out it isn't suitable as a food truck, and now she has plans to make it into a small camper. Shawn says the trailer won't work as a camper, either, and that it's time to sell it. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Joe Pritchard for suggesting this week's case name!
