    I downloaded the PDF through my university library. I could email it to you if you like.

    I skimmed it. There are a few cases presented as summaries, with a brief discussion following each describing the ridiculous statement and its effects on the case (all appear to be legal suits involving children that may or may not have been injured or abused). It’s good to see a clear, well-described definition for the concept “ridiculous statement”, as found in the Abstract.
