I don't know. But, I used to be amazed how any cases of first impression we used to get. You would think in a couple of hundred years that everything would have come up at least once, but people always find new things to disagree about.

I used to say the funniest thing was the fact that we had 82 counties, with each one putting their own interpretation to every statute, and one hundred per cent sure the other 81 had it wrong.
