Is the State of Georgia in the Fifth Circuit?, 81 YALE L.J. 30 (1971)
The Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale and one of the
puisne judges of the United States Court of.Appeals for the Second
Circuit, also sometime Nash Professor of Law at Columbia
University, were discussing the allocation of judicial business
among the several circuits. In the course of discussion, the judge
made the unqualified assertion that "the State of Georgia is in the
Fifth Circuit," a statement controverted by his colloquist. This
difference of view resulted in a wager of 5 cents. The judge's subsequent
letter of demand met with the reply set forth below.
