Boone Pickens, Tennessee Williams, Ted Williams, Julio Franco, Miguel Tejada, Billy Donovan, Allen Iverson, Michael Jordan, O.J. Simpson, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Mike Myers, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ed McMahon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ernesto Miranda. A Tort Is Not a Pastry provides a cutting edge examination of child abuse, age discrimination, gay rights, dating on the job, DNA evidence, hate crimes, pregnancy discrimination, prenuptial agreements, and spying on employees.
