Storyboard Text

  • November 23, 631 BC
  • Yes! At last I have made the Justinian Code.
  • November 25, 631 BC
  • One of my many rules is that words are binding. For example, if you say your going to trade something, then turn back on your word, you can get sued.
  • November 27, 631 BC
  • Sure...
  • Hey, do you want to trade shoes later?
  • The Byzantine Emperor, Justinian, just created his new set of laws. He thinks it will help rule and keep the people in order.
  • November 27, 631 BC
  • You ready?
  • Justinian has many rules in his set of laws, including the one listed above. In Missouri, the law is that words are not binding, and you need a witness to be sued.
  • November 29, 631 BC
  • I am going to steal ALL of Justinian's treasure and riches. I am a peasant and this will help me.
  • Since these kids are making a deal, if one kid turns back on his word, he could get sued.
  • November 29, 631 BC
  • I've been waiting for you, young peasant robber.
  • Since the kid turned back on his trade, his now going to be sued. In the Missouri law, however, he would not be sued and this wouldn't even be considered a crime or a bad thing for that matter.
  • I'm suing you!
  • Naah. Don't feel like it.
  • This little peasant boy is trying to break into Justinian's castle and steal his money. But in Justinian's laws, robbery is not a crime, but the victim could sue the robber for up to THREE TIMES the value of the stolen item.
  • Justinian is suing the young robber. In Missouri robbery is a crime and you can get fined and/or jail time.
