Cats substantially impact interstate commerce according to a recent 13 page opinion by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling discussed by the ABA Journal. The court ruled that the cats living at author Ernest Hemingway's museum/home are subject to federal regulation. In Constitutional Law, law students learn that the Commerce Clause regulates instruments, channels, and things (including cats?) that substantially impact commerce. The cats are the offspring of the author's famous six-toed cat, Snowball. Judge Dubina, writing for the majority, reasoned that the presence of the cats draws people to the museum as an exhibition. Thus, they are an important part of the museum's commercial activity and therefore subject to regulation by Congress.
If you are interested in learning more about constitutional law, take a look in the library catalog. Or, stop by the Legal Research Help Desk for assistance with formulating a research strategy.
