Are any of these fallacies used in a court of law? I know **** all, please enlighten me.

You typically wouldn't find these in a court of law. They tend to exist in arguments of logic/reason and opinion. Lawyers don't really have the opportunity to commit these fallacies due to the style of reasoning adopted, as well as conventions.

Any of these fallacies would be seen through in an instant by a competent judge / opposing lawyer, and would only reflect poorly on the party who committed it.

ya forgot my favorite one: the strawman
rephrase your opponents argument so that you can knock it down easier, like a man made of straw

BUT, logical fallacies, if your opponent doesn't know to point them out, are very useful in a debate. In arguments, logic is not the only factor in winning.
