A Torre de Babel

"Asseguram os ímpios que o disparate é normal na Biblioteca e que o razoável (e mesmo a humilde e pura coerência) é quase milagrosa excepção."

Casos extremos de morosidade processual

No "perfeito" modelo da common law:

"The opening argument in a British civil trial against the Bank of England lasted a record-breaking 80 days as the barrister set out the Bank of Credit & Commerce International's 850 million pound
(US$1.55 billion) case against the bank. Finally, defense barrister Nicholas Stadlen got a chance to make his own opening remarks. "After six months," he warned the court, "the empire strikes back." He easily broke the plaintiff attorney's record, taking 119 days to lay out his defense."
