Take My Mother-In-Law - Please!

An angry mother-in-law has had enough of being the punchline in her comedienne daughter-in-law's stand-up routine.

She is suing in New Jersey. Law.com has the story:
A New Jersey federal judge has been asked to order comedian Sunda Croonquist to shut up already with the Jewish mother-in-law jokes. Ruth Zafrin says in a pending suit that she is being falsely and maliciously tagged as a racist in her daughter-in-law's comedy routines. Zafrin's daughter and son-in-law, Shelley and Neil Edelman, also are plaintiffs in the suit, which charges the comedian depicts them in a false light with intent to harm. On Tuesday Judge Mary Cooper denied a motion to dismiss on procedural grounds.
