Supreme Court Haiku - the law of the land in 17 syllables

The Supreme Court Haiku Reporter renders the rulings of U.S. Supreme Court decisions as Haiku.  The results tend to be pointed and concise.  For example:

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka (1954)

Schools for black and white
Separate is not equal

For more recent decisions a link to the opinion is provided and older opinions are linked to a Wikipedia discussion of the opinions and its' impact.
