That funny judgement with the tree

I found this judgement through a Groklaw article some time ago. Recently I desired to reread it, but it took me quite a lot of tries to remember sufficiently precise search terms to locate it again. Clearly it has not received enough link love.

It's about a young couple who bought a house and cut down a mulberry tree which leanend over the backyard but actually belonged to their new neighbour. The neighbour sued. Fairly banal case, except that it is presented with hilarious wit.

I give you Thayer v. DeWolf, memorandum order by Magistrate Judge Goodbread, who I think would make a good hacker. Respectfully recommended for your reading pleasure.
