I'm adding a quick-and-dirty translation. (And I don't know about court vocabulary, as can be seen below )
A gardener who cares for his flowers
Last Friday at the 6th department of the (some kind of local) court there was a case between the cigarmaker's wife Andersson and previous foreman Göran Lundeqvist.
In the application of Mrs Andersson she was asking responsibility of Mr Lundeqvist for hitting her minor son six times over the ear and then throwing him to the ground so that the boy became black and blue in the face, and this violence had been committed just because "little Axel" had broken off one flower in Lundeqvist's garden.
President: (after the reading aloud of the application, to Mrs Andersson): Listen, do you want to make a court case of such a petty thing? I'd like to tell Mrs that if a boy gets jacketed, that is a good thing.
Mrs Andersson: No, I don't think so. It can not be good to give a two year old boy six slaps and then throw him to the ground, making him black and blue in the face, just for a little flower that he broke without understanding. I ask to call my my two witnesses.
Lundeqvist: I deny the black and blue. The thing is that the boy pulled several plants up with their roots, behind my back. I did slap him, I admit, and he might have fallen on his nose. But doesn't everybody know that small folks can fall over by themselves. I just want to say I deny that he became blue, because he already was black and blue.
President: Well the only thing between you...
Lundeqvist (interrupting)... is that he became black and blue in the face.
Mrs Andersson. He became black and blue in the face because of the treatment of Mr Lundeqvist, the witnesses can tell.
The witnesses were heard, and they say that they saw little Axel pick a flower in L:s garden, after which L came, gave him six slaps over the ear and pushed him out of the garden so that he fell on his nose, and a few hours thereafter it started becoming "black and blue".
Lundeqvist. I say that the witnesses are not good enough. They don't like me, because I'm the janitor and keep Återvändsgränd in a good and orderly state. I say that Mrs Andersson is responsible for not caring for her child, and I want to prove to next time that he was already black and blue.
President.Oh, you want to run here often do you?
Lundeqvist (sure of himself): Yes, we will have to do that when she says he became black and blue.
President: Case dismissed until 31 July. Return with your witnesses then. Good bye.
