NARA Gov Doc: Virginia sues West Virginia 12/03/1866
This December 1866 subpoena ordered representatives of the State of West Virginia to appear before the Supreme Court in a post-Civil War jurisdictional dispute between Virginia and West Virginia. Virginia sought to reclaim Berkeley and Jefferson Counties from West Virginia. The Supreme Court rejected Virginia’s claims in 1871.

Happy Birthday to Mickey Mouse!
Soon after his debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse and his creator, Walt Disney, were in court. This exhibit can be found in the infringement of trademark case, Walt Disney v. Pathe Exchange, etal, filed by Disney’s lawyers on March 30, 1931. The Walt Disney company won this case (and many others).
We love this document because Mickey and Minnie can stay so positive, even as their fate is being litigated!
