Limerick of the Week

Cardozo_1 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.
