Five Page Comic Fails To Persuade US District Judge

Bob Kohn, a lawyer in the current e-book antitrust lawsuit, in opposition to the Justice Department's proposed settlement was told by the U.S. District Judge Denise Cote of Manhattan to submit his argument in five pages.

He did so in a comic book, created to comply with court rules over font size and margins. The comic was drawn by a college friend of Kohn's daughter.

Is it a total coincidence that Bob Kohn looks a little like Scott McCloud in the comic?

Sadly it didn't work out and Cote approved the Justice Department's settlement.
