What is a Photocopier?

Back in 2010, the Cuyahoga County Recorder was sued for charging an exorbitant $2 per page for photocopies and overcharging for various other public records.

Cleveland Scene made note of the transcript of the deposition of a county employee, arguing over the definition of a photocopier. These kind of absurd exchanges are fairly common in depositions.

 A talented writer and director took the verbatim legal transcript and dramatized it. What resulted was a fall-out-of-your-chair cornucopia of laughs.

Read the whole article here.

By the way: The recorder's office still charges $2 per page (which isn't even unusual anymore, as the oil & gas areas in southern Ohio are known to charge $4/page!)
