CRAZY PEOPLE IN COURT presents a Judge’s look at the variety of interesting mental disorders and persons one finds in those “magnets of humanity”, America’s courtrooms. Shakespeare’s Hamlet told his friend, “There are more things in heaven and earth l than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio.” Similarly, there are stranger persona in Judge Coates’ world than a reader may have experienced. This book is therefore an exploration, an adventure. And Judge Coates makes it fun - because, for Judge Coates, the serious business of justice is also great fun. Delightful! He has said: “My IQ is not high enough for me to get bored.” Try out Sergeant Major Ninja. Or, Reefer Bob. Or Randorino who buried his dead mother in the back yard and collected her Social Security. Or the veteran who lost a fight with a police horse. Or, the genius attorney in “I Believe I’ll Have a Drink.” And kicking the book off, we find Judge Coates’ own Story. Check it out.
