A book came across my desk recently and its title sparked immediate interest. It is called Legally Chocolate: A Confection of Cocoa in the Courts. According to the back of the book, “[e]ach chapter focuses on interesting legal cases or regulations relating to chocolate, using authentic, relevant, and amusing case law and references that are sure to sweeten the reader's experience” (pun intended?).
The good news is that you have made it to exam time and the bad news is that sometimes exam time can be stressful. The library’s collection contains resources in print and online that provide information on how to help manage exam stress.
If you are not a native of Southern New England, you may not be familiar with the details of the Lizzie Borden case. Lizzie Borden allegedly murdered her parents in 1892. A trial, in which Lizzie was acquitted, followed soon thereafter. Lizzie Borden is commemorated by a nursery rhyme, albeit a bloody one:
Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.

According to Examiner.com, March 20th was Extraterrestrial Abductions Day.
Having never heard of this “holiday” and having no idea how one might celebrate it, the Legal Beagle decided to see what would happen if one looked up the same concept in multiple databases. Would Lexis Advance, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law all agree on what case is the “leading case” on this topic?
