David Lewis BioFor all the legal history buffs, here is the cartoon referenced by Justice Felix Frankfurter in 1947 and again today by Chief Justice Roberts (in which a senator tells his colleagues ‘I admit this new bill is too complicated to understand. We’ll just have to pass it to find out what it means.’”) King v. Burrell, 576 U.S. __ (2015) pages 14-15 at slip opinion, referring to Some Reflections on the Reading of Statutes, 47 Col. L. Rev. 527, 545 (1947). Although slightly mischaracterized (see cartoon caption).
Grin and Bear It, a daily cartoon strip was created by American cartoonist, George Maurice Lichtenstein (May 16, 1905 – July 18, 1983), under the pen name George Lichty.
A cartoonist living the legal scholar’s dream ~ twice cited by US Supreme Court Justices!
