dainbramage.jpg
Complaint: Misdemeanor placement of an apostrophe after “kids” so as to render it possessive; making said error into an advertising tag line for a law firm; printing incorrect tag line on posters; mounting posters inside subway cars belonging to the Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York.
Defendant: The law offices of Fitzgerald & Fitzgerald.
Report: Officer was trapped in an A-train subway car, listening to a bum’s well-rehearsed monologue about having no money (aside from the $2 subway fare, one would presume). Officer noticed the transgression despite the offending tag line being overwhelmed by a horrible photograph and generally unpleasant art direction.
Fine: $175 and tort reform.
