An Amicus Brief Straight From the Funny Papers

My colleague, DeLeith Duke Gossett, just walked into my office with what may be the most memorable amicus brief I've seen in a while.  It is composed (with the exception of the caption, table of authorities, and signature block) as a comic strip and was filed in the Apple e-book case by Bob Kohn in the Southern District of New York.  From the brief:

Cartoonbrief

The writer succeeded on two fronts here: the brief is memorable and readable.  Maybe the court will actually read this amicus brief.  If so, I'd call it a win for Mr. Kohn!
