Lawsuit of the century? “South Dakota v. Fifteen Impounded Cats”

I have just discovered a legal blog called “Lowering the Bar: Legal humor. Seriously.” And I’m in love! Because what they write about is actual legal stuff that reads like satire.

Here’s the beginning of one case I just landed on:

In this case—now also appearing on the Comical Case Names page—the Supreme Court of South Dakota grappled with legal issues arising from an officer’s decision to impound fifteen cats he found roaming around a woman’s car. South Dakota v. Fifteen Impounded Cats, 785 N.W.2d 272 (S.D. 2010). In a split decision, the justices rejected the woman’s arguments that the evidence was insufficient to support the cat seizure and that said seizure violated her constitutional rights.

The cats were not actually parties to the case.

You do want to read on, don’t you? Please. Feel free: South Dakota v. Fifteen Impounded Cats – Lowering the Bar.
