Welcome to Law.com’s Midweek Recess, in which we round up some tasty tidbits from the week’s legal news cycle. We’ll be here every Wednesday, so grab a cup of coffee and take a little break. It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.

Not ‘Wild’ about You - Joe Francis, of Girls Gone Wild fame, is ticking off a judge by refusing to return three cars belonging to his now-bankrupt company. Francis claims that he couldn’t retrieve the cars (which are “(i)a 2007 Cadillac Escalade… (ii)a 2012 Bentley flying Spur… and (iii) a 2012 Bentley Flying Spur,” in case you care) because a Mexican strip club owner took them as a consolation prize after a promotional deal between Girls Gone Wild and his, erm, venue, fell through. Francis’s lawyer argues that he cannot pay cash for the cars because “he doesn’t have any money.”
