Bagdasarian Productions LLC v. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. (9th Cir. - March 26, 2012)

It's true that my kids love everything relating to Alvin and the Chipmunks.  They watched the sequel -- a.k.a., "The Squeakquel" (gotta love Hollywood) -- just last week.

But I doubt that I could persuade even lawyers with a similar passion for high-pitched animal movies to read this opinion.  It's about referee references and appellate jurisdiction.  Which I'm hoping will be the topic of the next installment of the series.

Alvin and the Chipmunks Visit the Ninth Circuit.  Starring Judge Betty Fletcher as Alvin.
