Legal Opinions to the tune of LeAnn Rimes

So, Google was kind enough to highlight this in their blog yesterday, and I feel that it is my duty as a citizen of the interwebs/series of tubes to repost this here, because I’m willing to bet that most of my readers don’t read the Google Blog.

Anyway, back in 2001 LeAnn Rimes sued Curb Records Inc to void a contract she signed when she was a minor. The kicker, is that the legal opinion released by the court was written in song, intended to be sung to the tune of several LeAnn Rimes songs. I kid you not. I quote the opening lines of the “Statement of Facts”:

LeAnn Rimes

A very rich and famous star

Wasn’t so rich in times afar

But what a talent she had!
