Cartoons are full of conflict and violence, what would happen if a character was brought into court and put on trial? It has happened, in the case of Wile E. Coyote v. Acme Company.

Your assignment is to write up a legal document outlining a case that might arise out of a cartoon, TV show, or comic. Use all of the legal language, and make an effort to make your document look real. For added points of challenge, include some form of media (a traffic cam photo, a chart of evidence, a video) to support the case.
