The Sirens vs. Orpheus

Case Description: Complainants (the Sirens) accuse defendant (Orpheus) of assault. The singing bird-ladies said that Orpheus "assaulted" them with his music while he was on the Quest for the Golden Fleece with Jason and the Argonauts.

Case Status: Case closed. Orpheus won the case by claiming self-defense. The Sirens were singing their mesmerizing songs in order to lure the Argonauts to their deaths, and Orpheus only whipped out his lyre to drown out their deadly crooning.
