For a little mid-semester humor, check the February 2011 Texas bar Journal, where John G. Browning presents some interesting case names. His article, Saying it with Style, includes some aptly paired party names, like Plough v. Fields, Silver v. Gold, and Klump v. Duffus. Another case name sounds like a roll call of “The Sopranos.” And some “in rem” names are particularly intriguing—for example, United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins. Another noteworthy title (not included in the article) is Roe v. Wade—which seems to present two ways to cross a river.
