The Case of the Case Quarter

Word Fun: Issue No. 1

While in a public space an individual asks that you give them a ‘case quarter’.

You are:

A: Opposing attorneys arguing for the plaintiff and the defense, respectively.  He or she is requesting that you pre-divulge a specified percentage of the evidence assembled by your office before ‘discovery’.

B: Both regulars at the laundromat and the guy or lady wants 25¢, only it’s gotta be a quarter with George Washington on it, not two dimes and a nickel.

C: Midshipmen on a merchant vessel.  Your coastwise course will cross the Equator very soon and the second mate needs an accounting of the ship’s store before entering foreign waters.
