The Zoopreme Court is much cuter than the Supreme Court

Zoopreme Court Ever wanted to remember all the justices of the Supreme Court, past and present? Well it's a whole lot easier if they are animals. Dan Schofield and Alice DuBois are illustrating all 112 justices as various critters, as well as several landmark cases.

Seems like a lot of bears. (also: this is RAD!)

Any bets on who gets the honey badger treatment?

Worth it for Landmark Case: Miranaconda v. Bearizona alone.

Thurgood Marshall deserves better than "Marsh Vole." But it's nice that William Wrenquist is sartorially correct down to the stripes on his shoulders.

Seems a bit kind to the current 5-4 majority of activist ideologues.

Then again, pretty much anything is too kind for them.

The notoriously aquiline J. McReynolds would look rather fetching as an eagle. Just sayin'.

Also, this is cute, although yes, there are too many bears. On the other hand, Sandra Day Okapi is sort of brilliant, as is Anthony Toucannedy.

came to say exactly the same about Scalia (perfectly backhanded zoomage) and David Souter, which, actually, i think is a compliment.

Since they already did her, they missed the golden opportunity of Ruth Badger Ginsburg.

They won an out-loud laugh for Sandra Day Okapi.

What Iridic said, only my thought was "This website is an awfully long way to go just for Sandra Day Okapi".

Where are the 19th and 18th century justices? John Jay and Salmon P. Chase are layups.

Scalia is far more foul smelling than any skunk and should've been represented by a pile of burning dirty diapers. I know a pile of burning dirty diapers isn't an animal, but still.

If they could stretch it beyond the Supreme Court, I'd love to see a stern boar named Learned Ham.

I've had this same idea for years, but with authors. It makes for a fun dinner party / bar game.

Jorge Luis Boar-ges.
Umberto Gecko.
Ernest Lemmingway.
Roberto Vole-año.

I had a bunch more at some point...
