Now we’re talking about bait in Constitutional law. Yes, you read it correctly; we’re studying the Dormant Commerce Clause and just discussed an opinion regarding a ban on the importation into one state of live bait from any other state. The state convinced the Supreme Court that it posed a significant hazard to the ecosystem of the state and therefore the interest of the state outweighed the burden on interstate commerce. Justice Stephens, according to Professor ConLaw, dissented, saying, “There’s something fishy about this case.”

Har, har har. Those Supremes sure have a great sense of humor.
