The Little Green Book of Golf Law:
The Real Rules of the Game of Golf
John H. Minan
Author and Professor of Law, John Minan, has selected a total of nineteen cases to correspond to the typical eighteen holes played in a round of golf, plus one for the traditional nineteenth hole. Each chapter examines a different set of facts and involves an actual case involving golf.
The chapters explore a wide array of legal issues –Tiger Woods’ right of publicity, personal injury claims for negligence and products liability, contract disputes involving hole-in-one contests and golf cart rentals, a forfeiture claim under the Endangered Species Act, the Internal Revenue Service’s litigation against a taxpayer over tax deductions for golf expenses, patent and trade mark disputes, and more. In addition, each chapter identifies the subject matter and the official citation to the case in the chapter heading.
Violating “the law” of golf – as opposed to the rules that govern the game – can have serious consequences. You don’t have to be a lawyer to enjoy this book, which combines two great passions: law and golf.
