A very short episode for the Holidays. Sung by members of the Institute for Justice. Click to listen, but here are the words:

On the 1st day of Short Circuit Christmas my federal reporter gave to me

A thesaurus under Judge Selya’s pine tree

On the 2d day of Short Circuit Christmas my federal reporter gave to me

Two Calabresi tort rules

And a thesaurus under Judge Selya’s pine tree.

On the 3d day of Short Circuit Christmas my federal reporter gave to me

Et al.

[Yeah, you know how the song goes. Let’s skip to the 12th, i.e. D.C. Cir., verse & you can see all of them at once]

Twelve vacaturs granted

Eleven judges named Pryor

Ten library courtrooms

Nine en banc reversals

Eight qualified immunities

Seven Chicago professors

Six Sutton Stanzas

Five Judge Hos

Four ex-prosecutors

Three Jersey convictions

Two Calabresi tort rules

And a thesaurus under Judge Selya’s pine tree.
