Library Week Contest Questions and Answers

Yesterday's National Library Week Trivia Answer
Question: In 1990, the opinion written by Judge Alex Kozinski in United States v. Syufy Enterprises (903 F.2d 659) grabbed headlines for its style as well as its legal substance. Why?

Answer: Some suspected that the Ninth Circuit judge worked more than 200 movie titles into the text of the opinion. To see them, read The Syufy Rosetta Stone, 1992 BYU L. Rev. 457 (Spring 1992).
