Just before Halloween, we asked our readers to submit their legally themed costumes for our annual competition. We have received a large number of entries, and there are a lot of pets and babies involved this year thanks to the pandemic and lack of socially distant parties. We think you will like them a lot.
We have five great finalists to choose from and voting starts today. Who will be the winner of the eleventh year of our competition?
Let's start with this powerful template. Our finalist explains his costume as follows:
Section 404 of the Clean Water Act requires a permit for the discharge of dredging or filler material into "United States waters". Improper procurement will result in a procedural error. Assuming that the actual Schitt & # 39; s Creek is a tributary of a navigable water, it is a WOTUS according to Rapanos against the United States, 547 US 715 (2006) and the Navigable Waters Protection Rule (2020) as well as any discharge (Schitt) flowing into this Schitt & # 39; s Creek would therefore require a Section 404 permit.
Next we have a candidate with some learned paws. This adorable kitten is dressed up as a tax professor for WUSTL law and his costume is handcrafted.
Our next finalist doesn't need an introduction. It's Ruth Baby Ginsburg and she is precious!
But wait, there's another Ruth Baby Ginsburg here and this little cutie is only five days old!
Most recently we have Ruth Bader Ginspurrrrrrrrrg. She will always be the cat's meow.
You've seen the finalists, now it's time to vote. Who wore the best legal Halloween costume this year? It's all up to you! Close polls SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22nd, 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) so tell your friends to vote asap.
