You've probably seen the phrase "Thank you in advance" (sometimes abbreviated TYIA) in emails where the sender is asking for something and, presumably, won't send you a thank-you if you provide it. It's always struck me as a very odd phrase (and perhaps Bryan Garner will write more on it [see here]). But I'm invoking my own version now: I apologize in advance for this post.
But I simply can't resist noting Friday's case Gort v. Kort, a poetic caption straight from 1950's science fiction.
Klattu barata niktu, everyone.
The Day the Case Stood Still: Demurrer sustained without leave to amend, affirmed.
Need another amusing case name? How about Coffey v. Beverages & More.
