Robert Nevens's complaint? He spent 11 years at the Maharishi International University and he still can't levitate. He sues, and a Washington, D.C., jury awards him $137,890. A 31-year-old Californian feels that Sizzler steakhouses's senior-citizen discount discriminates against him. He loses. So does a Virginia prison inmate who sues the man he deems responsible for his jail term—himself. They're among the sure-to-amuse actual lawsuits in Whiplash! If that's not enough, they're interspersed with always-useful lawyer jokes. (Andrews McMeel, $9.95)

Bottom Line: You don't like it? Sue!
