    This was absolutely hilarious! There were some parts that I didn?t really get, but I think that?s mainly due to my lack of judicial system knowledge. ...

    Not nearly as funny as the facebook post was. ...

    I chose ?Disorder in the Court? because I was looking for something unique and funny for me to read. The book is about all the stupid and silly things people have said and done in a courtroom. From accounts of people misunderstanding terms in the courtroom to people saying ridicul...

    Hilarious read, most of them were funny, some of them I didn't quite understand (which I blame to me having studied law based in roman law and not in common law, the systems are wildly different) but some were GREAT and I am sure I will remember them in days and weeks and months to com...

    I am informed that Mr. Charles M. Sevilla is ranked one of the best lawyers in America! He also has a good sense of humor I must admit. His collections of some of the most hillarious moments in court kept me laughing on my own like a mad man. Honestly, I bought this book for other reas...

    Hysterical! I actually got this for someone as a gift but wound up reading it myself. Hysterical! I cannot believe some of these things were actually said. If you just want to read something to make you laugh..congrats, this is the book to do that! ...

    Did u go to law school Great book have a couple lawyers in the family, good laughs. It is fun to watch the witness be brutally honest ...

    More "great" moments in courtroom history. It is advised to read this book in a place where people will not try to save you from choking. ...

    I went into this having high expectations from the snippets I saw on tumblr. Because of that, I feel like I was greatly disappointed to the point where I couldn't really enjoy it. ...

    A good book for reading small sections at a time - funny in parts but I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if I was a lawyer. ...

    I'm actually looking into taking court reporter certification courses at my local community college now; that's how much I love this book! ...

    3 stars Disorder in the Court is a collection of humorous anecdotes recorded by court reporters from across the United States. Sevilla includes threads of testimony with comically confusing and unclear questions and answers, as well as tid-bits offered by sarcastic witnesses and...

    A quick read, that definitely helps combat boredom (especially while taking public transit). Some sections were funnier than others. However, based on the excerpts I saw while reading reviews prior to picking up a copy I was vaguely disappointed --it just wasn't the source of side-spli...

    This book was as funny as I expected, a chuckle here and there with most of the situations just being silly. Definitely more geared towards a coffee table book that you pick up every once in a while. The illustrations did help to keep some of the more sagging bits going while the book ...

    Fun, little book and a quick read. I work in the legal field and admit some of it might be funnier to those with that background, but it isn't necessary to get the humor. A light entertaining read. ...

    This book wasn't as funny as I thought, but still had some funny quotes from people who had gone to court and what the judges and lawyers had said. But I probably didn't get some of it because I am not that interested in law, so this might be a more funny book for people interested in ...

    Sadly the funniest bits in this were the extracts they give you :( Was looking forward to a good laugh x ...

    A cute little book that is any easy afternoon read that has some funny moments ...

    Very funny insight to the world of court rooms ...

    Enjoyed these funny moments in court! ...

    *John Mulaney imitating Mick Jagger* NOT FUNNAY Honestly just not that funny. There were about 10 or less anecdotes that really made me chuckle ...

    I was reading this while packing and moving between apartments, so I?m rather fuzzy on the day I started reading it. If this is how our justice system really behaves, I?m scared. The comments were funny at first, but after a while I found myself skimming the blurbs to find the punc...

    Read this all in one sitting because the sections were so short and funny! While at times I did get a little confused, as I've never been in a court setting and didn't understand all of the notations, this book was, regarding legal terms, generally easy for your average person to under...

    2.5 stars Very quick reading. It was alright. I don't remember where I heard about it, but I'd have to say it didn't live up to expectations, and it wasn't worth an inter-library loan. I say the part about an inter-library loan because I want to just drop it in the return chute and fo...

    Oh, I needed that. After a lot of long, stress-filled weeks, I need the laugh-out-loud moments this book brought me. I pestered my husband by reading some of the bits out loud to him, and by the look on his face, he didn't find them nearly as hysterical as I did. While there are pa...

    Courtroom humour, lots of funny and some not so funny and quirky things that have been told in the courtroom by legal people and the ones they represent....all true. I actually started this book some time ago and just picked it up again to finish. This is a book you can leave and jus...

    I have had this book for a while now and it was either read it or bin it. The book was funny in parts but was not quite able to hold my attention all the way to the end. I did finish it only because I wanted to finish what I started. Not a bad book but then again not up to the h...

    I liked it enough. The funniest ones were from the Defendants and the Witnesses. Some in the others parts were pretty funny too but there are a lot that I couldn't get since I don't really speak lawyer but it was still fun to read. ...

    This was great to read a few pages of lawyer jokes and scenarios right before I went to bed. If you are in the legal profession or know anyone who is, you will definitely get a kick out of a tun of these short blurbs. It's great. ...

    Fun, little book and a quick read. I work in the legal field and admit some of it might be funnier to those with that background, but it isn't necessary to get the humor. A light entertaining read. ...

    This book wasn't as funny as I thought, but still had some funny quotes from people who had gone to court and what the judges and lawyers had said. But I probably didn't get some of it because I am not that interested in law, so this might be a more funny book for people interested in ...

    A cute little book that is any easy afternoon read that has some funny moments ...

    Very funny insight to the world of court rooms ...

    Enjoyed these funny moments in court! ...

    *John Mulaney imitating Mick Jagger* NOT FUNNAY Honestly just not that funny. There were about 10 or less anecdotes that really made me chuckle ...

    I was reading this while packing and moving between apartments, so I?m rather fuzzy on the day I started reading it. If this is how our justice system really behaves, I?m scared. The comments were funny at first, but after a while I found myself skimming the blurbs to find the punc...

    Read this all in one sitting because the sections were so short and funny! While at times I did get a little confused, as I've never been in a court setting and didn't understand all of the notations, this book was, regarding legal terms, generally easy for your average person to under...

    2.5 stars Very quick reading. It was alright. I don't remember where I heard about it, but I'd have to say it didn't live up to expectations, and it wasn't worth an inter-library loan. I say the part about an inter-library loan because I want to just drop it in the return chute and fo...

    Oh, I needed that. After a lot of long, stress-filled weeks, I need the laugh-out-loud moments this book brought me. I pestered my husband by reading some of the bits out loud to him, and by the look on his face, he didn't find them nearly as hysterical as I did. While there are pa...

    Courtroom humour, lots of funny and some not so funny and quirky things that have been told in the courtroom by legal people and the ones they represent....all true. I actually started this book some time ago and just picked it up again to finish. This is a book you can leave and jus...

    I have had this book for a while now and it was either read it or bin it. The book was funny in parts but was not quite able to hold my attention all the way to the end. I did finish it only because I wanted to finish what I started. Not a bad book but then again not up to the h...

    I liked it enough. The funniest ones were from the Defendants and the Witnesses. Some in the others parts were pretty funny too but there are a lot that I couldn't get since I don't really speak lawyer but it was still fun to read. ...

    More "great" moments in courtroom history. It is advised to read this book in a place where people will not try to save you from choking. ...

    I went into this having high expectations from the snippets I saw on tumblr. Because of that, I feel like I was greatly disappointed to the point where I couldn't really enjoy it. ...

    A good book for reading small sections at a time - funny in parts but I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if I was a lawyer. ...

    I'm actually looking into taking court reporter certification courses at my local community college now; that's how much I love this book! ...

    3 stars Disorder in the Court is a collection of humorous anecdotes recorded by court reporters from across the United States. Sevilla includes threads of testimony with comically confusing and unclear questions and answers, as well as tid-bits offered by sarcastic witnesses and...

    A quick read, that definitely helps combat boredom (especially while taking public transit). Some sections were funnier than others. However, based on the excerpts I saw while reading reviews prior to picking up a copy I was vaguely disappointed --it just wasn't the source of side-spli...

    This book was as funny as I expected, a chuckle here and there with most of the situations just being silly. Definitely more geared towards a coffee table book that you pick up every once in a while. The illustrations did help to keep some of the more sagging bits going while the book ...

    Fun, little book and a quick read. I work in the legal field and admit some of it might be funnier to those with that background, but it isn't necessary to get the humor. A light entertaining read. ...

    This book wasn't as funny as I thought, but still had some funny quotes from people who had gone to court and what the judges and lawyers had said. But I probably didn't get some of it because I am not that interested in law, so this might be a more funny book for people interested in ...

    Sadly the funniest bits in this were the extracts they give you :( Was looking forward to a good laugh x ...

    A cute little book that is any easy afternoon read that has some funny moments ...

    Very funny insight to the world of court rooms ...

    Enjoyed these funny moments in court! ...

    *John Mulaney imitating Mick Jagger* NOT FUNNAY Honestly just not that funny. There were about 10 or less anecdotes that really made me chuckle ...

    I was reading this while packing and moving between apartments, so I?m rather fuzzy on the day I started reading it. If this is how our justice system really behaves, I?m scared. The comments were funny at first, but after a while I found myself skimming the blurbs to find the punc...

    Read this all in one sitting because the sections were so short and funny! While at times I did get a little confused, as I've never been in a court setting and didn't understand all of the notations, this book was, regarding legal terms, generally easy for your average person to under...

    Hilarious read, most of them were funny, some of them I didn't quite understand (which I blame to me having studied law based in roman law and not in common law, the systems are wildly different) but some were GREAT and I am sure I will remember them in days and weeks and months to com...

    I am informed that Mr. Charles M. Sevilla is ranked one of the best lawyers in America! He also has a good sense of humor I must admit. His collections of some of the most hillarious moments in court kept me laughing on my own like a mad man. Honestly, I bought this book for other reas...
