But just for kicks, she does so in a 'rap'. Taken from Yahoo (story.news.yahoo.com):


Michigan Judge Gives Rap Ruling in Eminem Case


DETROIT (Reuters) - A Michigan judge has written a rap-inspired poem to explain why hip-hop superstar Eminem didn't take the rap for slander.


Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Deborah Servitto dismissed a case against Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, last Friday. It had been filed by Deangelo Bailey, who sued over lyrics in the song "Brain Damage" on Eminem's highly popular "The Slim Shady Album."


In the song Eminem says Bailey harassed him and beat him up daily when they were kids at the same elementary school.


In her poem, excerpts of which were published in Tuesday's editions of the Detroit Free Press, Servitto said Eminem broke no laws with his song about Bailey.


"The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact/They're an exaggeration of a childish act," she wrote.


"Any reasonable person could clearly see/That the lyrics could only be hyperbole."

I'm not sure whether this judge is really funny, or just completely ridiculous.

Mark me down as voting 'completely ridiculous'. I'd expect to see something like this on Ally McBeal, not in a real courtroom.

I'm sure glad I don't live in Detroit.
