Atalanta vs. King Iasus

Case Description: Complainant (Atalanta) accuses Defendant (King Iasus) of attempted infanticide. Atalanta's father, King Iasus, was disappointed that she was born a girl, so he abandoned her on a mountainside to die. Luckily for Atalanta, a friendly she-bear came along and nursed her. She grew up wild and eventually came back and accused her dad of the crime.

Case Status: Case dismissed. The king totally owned up to it, but he was the king, so nobody could really do anything about it.
