What happens when a patient, a doctor and a judge all end up in the same room? Did the patient get a clean bill of health, or did he just get the bill from his lawyer? Examine this scenario and send us your strongest caption for this month’s cartoon. The winner of our August challenge will see their caption and credit printed in an upcoming issue of the ABA Journal.

Congrats to July’s winning contest contributor, Benjamin Dryden of Washington, D.C. His caption will appear in an upcoming issue of the ABA Journal.
