I find everything about Jacob & Youngs v. Kent difficult. Even the name. I always want to call it Jacobs & Young. But this is one of those great Cardozo opinions that, like a great poem, repays re-reading. And speaking of poems . . .
Kent called for beheading or stripes
When his builder eschewed Reading pipes.
There was no harm financial;
The court found substantial
Performance, ignoring Kent's gripes.
