Dr. Seuss comes to the Supreme Court


Today's dissent by Justice Kagan in fish isn't a "tangible object" case has the first Dr. Seuss citation in U.S. Supreme Court history:

A fish is, of course, a discrete thing that possesses physical form. See generally Dr. Seuss, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (1960). So the ordinary meaning of the term "tangible object" in §1519, as no one here disputes, covers fish (including too-small red grouper).
