• “Lady Justice. You spend your whole life chasing her—only to discover she is a different species entirely.” —Submitted by Charles E. Rust of Cincinnati

• “Have you heard they’re banning laser pointers in the courtroom?” —Submitted by Jeffrey J. Upton of Milton, Massachusetts

• “Given that they have nine lives, we may have to rethink this lifetime appointment thing.” —Submitted by Thomas W. Funk of Lincoln, Illinois

How to vote: Using our poll, select the caption you think best fits the scene depicted in the cartoon.

Voting period: The poll closes at 11:59 p.m. CT on Monday, May 28.

What’s the prize? Bragging rights. Plus, the winning caption and credit to the caption writer will appear in an upcoming issue of the ABA Journal.
