Case File: The Furies vs. the Oracle of Delphi

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (the Furies) accuse Defendant (the Oracle of Delphi) of harboring a fugitive. After Orestes killed his mother, the Furies chased him all over the place. The ladies of vengeance were none too pleased when Orestes took refuge with the Oracle.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Apollo stepped in and set up a trial of Orestes with Athena as judge, and eventually the Furies chilled out about it all.
