My mother-in-law is so litigious... (Sunda Croonquist wins legal fight to joke about family) | Chortle
An American stand-up has won her legal fight to joke about her family – after her mother-in-law sued her over the gags. Sunda Croonquist bases her material on being a half-black, half-Swedish woman who married into a Jewish family – but the in-laws took offence and claimed the gags meant they were subject to public ridicule. US District Judge Mary Coop has now thrown the case out of court, saying the routine is protected under the First Amendment right to free speech.
