    I liked the one I saw in a court decision , senior moment about where, that gave the plaintiffs a big bunch of money
    because their employer had omitted a comma in their handbook about overtime thus making them eligible when the employer had wanted to prevent paying overtime.

    So much for the US English departments that say that you should omit that last comma which the folks in UK always use.
