Evelyn brings this case against her sister Fran. Since childhood, Evelyn has been known by the moniker "Evie" -- a nickname she doesn't care for. Evelyn believes she's outgrown the name and wants her family to stop referring to her as "Evie," whether she's present or not. Fran, on the other hand, believes one cannot mandate one's own nickname and claims she and the rest of Evelyn's family are entitled to call her whatever they like. What's in a name? Judge John Hodgman will decide.

, joins Judge Hodgman this week as guest bailiff. Elizabeth released her great-grandmother's cookbook earlier this year under the title At Home on the Range
