“What makes you think this is rigged?” —Submitted by reader Dale Stout

Congratulations to Dale Stout of Colorado Springs for his cartoon caption, which earned the most votes in an online poll. His was among more than 150 entries and one of three finalists in the Journal’s inaugural legal-themed cartoon caption-writing contest.

On a regular basis, cartoons will be posted at and readers are invited to tell us what’s happening in the scene by submitting clever, original captions. The ABA Journal staff will review the entries, pick their favorites and then ask readers to vote for the best one. The winning caption, with credit to the writer, will appear in an upcoming issue of the Journal.
