Whose vanity plate is it: Lawyer? Politician? Investigator?

The “CSI effect”.  (The Economist, 4/22/2010)
The task of keeping jurors' feet on the ground falls to lawyers and judges. In one study, carried out by Dr Robbers in 2008, 62% of defence lawyers and 69% of judges agreed that jurors had unrealistic expectations of forensic evidence. Around half of respondents in each category also felt that jury selection was taking longer than it used to, because they had to be sure that prospective jurors were not judging scientific evidence by television standards.

Don't think the answer is in this 1994 book, which is not available in LINKcat.


Uh-oh.  Here's someone who makes a hobby of this type of post.

Sociological license plates, by Todd Schoepflin.  (Everyday Sociology, 5/26/2011)
I call them vanity plates, Todd.  I have a strange hobby. I take pictures of license plates that I find interesting. You’d probably call them personalized license plates, but I call them sociological license plates.

 You can do a search for Wisconsin personalized plates here.
