"The ostrich is a noble animal, but not a proper model for an appellate advocate." So writes Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner in an opinion that he issued today on behalf of a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. The opinion is noteworthy, among other reasons, because it contains two full-color photographs included apparently for illustration and emphasis.

Update: Carlyn Kolker of Reuters reports that "The ostrich is a poor example for litigators, says Posner."
