April Fools’ Day Quiz Answers

As promised, here are the answers and the citations for yesterday’s post, April Fools’ Day Quiz – Star Trek Court Cases.  Although some of the cases have been cited by elsewhere, I also tried to find others that are less familiar.  And I discovered that composing made-up opinions was quite difficult!  The best method seemed to be looking at real decisions on certain topics and composing a quote with elements inspired by several different real cases.

If you  have gotten between 70% to 100% on the quiz, Congratulations!! You are steeped in Star Trek lore and deeply learned in the law!  If 70% or less we recommend that on the next rainy weekend you curl up with a bowl of popcorn, streaming video of Star Trek features, and some caselaw reporters!  Or become devoted to Star Wars.
