In honor of the 20th anniversary of the movie My Cousin Vinny, Abnormal Use the blog of law firm Gallivan, White & Boyd, P.A. is presenting a week long salute to the film. Today’s post was an interview with director Jonathan Lynn. Still to come are interviews with Dale Launer, the film’s writer, and several of the actors who appeared in the film.
If you’ve never seen My Cousin Vinny, we have a copy you can borrow from the library.
The Wall Street Journal has a story about Houston lawyer Mark Lanier. He’s playing a small part as himself in a new movie called ‘Puncture‘ that just had its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film is based on a true story of a drug addicted lawyer’s battle against a syringe manufacturer.
I can’t find any information on when the film will be released but sounds like it could be interesting.
The revolving bookcase that stands between the Reference Desk [library maps] and Computer Hex 1 in the Library is called the “New Bookshelf” in our library catalog. It contains both books and DVDs, all of which have some type of legal theme. The DVDs may be checked out for three days, with one renewal allowed. Some of the titles are: My Cousin Vinny, 12 Angry Men, Inherit the Wind, and Sleepers. The books are all newly-acquired books, which maybe checked out for three weeks. Some of the titles are: One Nation,Underprivileged, Toxic Loopholes, The Law and Harry Potter, and The Myth of Rights. After several months on the New Bookshelf, the books are shelved in the treatise section of the Library according to their Library of Congress classification number.
