Case Law Wordles

One of the cool things about having a commons that contains public domain versions of case law is that it invites experimentation.

I ran across this nifty toy the other day called Wordle ( that let me create the above graphic. I grabbed a random Supreme Court case from CALI’s Legal Education Commons ( or and produced the Wordle you see above. Can you tell what the case is about?

BTW, clicking on the image will take you to the text of the case.

I will try to post a new one of these every couple of days just to see what happens as I run various famous cases through Wordle.
