Book Review: Flash Mob Law by Ruth Carter

Before you decide to be part of a flash mob, you might want to check out one of our newest library books first: Flash Mob Law by Ruth Carter.  According to the ABA, Ms. Carter, an Arizona attorney, is one of only two attorneys in the U.S. that practices flash mob law.  And, her book doesn’t stop at just flash mobs.  She also covers public pillow fights, groups riding public transportation with no pants, and as she puts it “other shenanigans.”  Like our mom used to say: it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.  So Ms. Carter does talk about personal injury.  But, she also discusses criminal law, privacy, intellectual property, and jurisdiction.  It’s not all legalities though.  She also provides some practical tips for flash mob planning.  This book is definitely a must read before your next flash mob!
