A brief synopsis:

 

Can you sue someone for breaking off an engagement?

 

In Trial by Jury, it’s a very serious crime!

 

Edwin, a fickle young man, had been engaged to the beautiful Angelina, but has fallen in love with another woman and has jilted her.  So Angelina takes him to court and sues him for breach of promise.  Unfortunately for Edwin, all of the members of the jury (and the judge) have fallen for Angelina themselves. Edwin proposes that in order to solve the conflict, he ‘marry this lady today and the other tomorrow,’ which, naturally, Angelina objects to. How will this be resolved…?
