Just a Bill

Here is one more addition to your collection of interesting and unusual court opinions.  When faced with the question of whether a law took effect on the date Congress passed it or when signed by the president, the judge quoted the lyrics from "I'm Just a Bill," a Schoolhouse Rock offering.

Lander & Berkowitz, P.C. v. Transfirst Health Servs., Inc., 374 F. Supp. 2d 776 (E.D. Mo. 2005).

Perhaps not as good as quoting Billy Madison, but worth knowing about.
