Court case: android head of Philip K. Dick lost
- This wonderful legal document, David Hanson and Hanson Robotics vs America West Airlines, is well worth the read. It involves the loss of "an artistically and scientifically valuable robotic head modeled after famous science fiction author Philip K. Dick" on a flight from Texas to San Francisco.
Throughout this document are wonderful passages that deviate from the usual dry legal speak. My favourite: "Perhaps because he had just woken up, Plaintiff lacked the total recall to remember to retrieve the Head from the overhead bin."
The judge found for the Defendant.
