1 1 Sawtooth and the petticoats: Judgemental

Sunday, May 8, 2011


Ever since learning that the Supreme Court has opinions on things like tomatoes, it has been much more interesting and much less stodgy to me.

Here are some Supreme Court cases that, by name alone, sound interesting.

  • United States v. American Sheet & Tin Plate Co., 301 U.S. 402 (1937)
  • Anheuser-Busch Brewing Assn. v. United States, 207 U.S. 556 (1908)
  • National Biscuit Co. v. Pennsylvania, 357 U.S. 571 (1958)
  • Transparent-Wrap Machine Corp. v. Stokes & Smith Co., 329 U.S. 637 (1947)

A slightly related story: Once, in a waiting room, I read a magazine that proclaimed "Judge Judy Unrobes!" on the cover. It was some dull magazine too, like Reader's Digest; it certainly was not Matronly Playboy or any such scandalous rag. I turned those pages so cautiously, not wanting to see Judy in her bloomers. Thankfully, it was all just a pun.
