Pholus vs. Heracles

Case Description: Complainant (Pholus) accuses Defendant (Heracles) of multiple accounts of murder. When Heracles was a guest of the centaur, Pholus, he insisted on opening a jar of wine despite the centaur's warnings. The smell of the wine made the rest of the centaurs crazy, and Heracles ended up killing a bunch of them with his Hydra-poisoned arrows. Pholus was also killed after he picked up one of Heracles' arrows and accidentally dropped it on his own foot—ahem, hoof.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Heracles is a god now, so we can't really do much about it.
