Tiresias vs. Hera

Case Description: Complainant (Tiresias) accuses Defendant (Hera) of cruel and unusual punishment. Zeus and Hera were in an argument about whether males or females enjoyed sex more. Since Tiresias spent time as both a man and a woman, they sent for him and asked. When Tiresias told them that sex as a woman was ten times better than sex as a man, Hera got mad and struck him blind.

Case Status: Case closed. Zeus couldn't do anything to give Tiresias his sight back, so he gave him the gift of prophecy instead.

Addendum: It should be noted that our file on Athena vs. Tiresias directly contradicts the details of this case.
