for Exhibit A is a schedule for filming that day, showing only a short interview in the Chamberlain House orangery, filmed in the daytime in midwinter and not requiring a full lighting rig.

against Calling as a witness a Mortis Maximis runner who can confirm Elizabeth’s repeated requests for gin fizzes, prior to her “passing out” on the day of filming.

for I present Exhibit B, a record of the temperature settings for the thermometer on the day of filming. Notice that it is set much higher than is recommended by various agencies.

This case is closed. Mortis Maximis is the winner. Elizabeth’s injury was somewhere between minor and not-an-injury, and the court finds her to be, quite frankly, a bit of a whiner. The fine is $0.
