U.S. v. Juvenile Male (9th Cir. - Dec. 14, 2006)

I always knew that forfeiture and in rem actions were captioned by the name of the property; for example, U.S. v. $23,865 (and the like). But, for people, I always thought we either used their initials or gave them a fictitious name; e.g., U.S. v. B.E, or U.S. v. John Doe. But then I read this case.

Which is fine. But I wonder where it stops? What's next? U.S. v. Slightly Overweight Man Who Really Needs a Shower and Can't Run a Seven Minute Mile?
