As reported in the February issue of the ABA Journal, HBO will premiere The Loving Story, a documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving of the U.S. Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, on Valentine’s Day. The documentary includes historical and current interviews with the couple’s lawyers, Bernard Cohen and Philip Hirschkop. The film was on the shortlist to be nominated for an Academy Award this year, but ultimately didn’t make the cut.
So this week, we’d like to ask you: What SCOTUS decision would you like to see a documentary or feature film about? Give us your pitches. Or, if you want, post a critique or sing the praises of The Loving Story, Amistad (United States v. Libellants and Claimants of the Schooner Amistad), or The People vs. Larry Flynt (Hustler Magazine v. Falwell).

Read the answers to last week’s question: Do You Friend on Facebook or Follow on Twitter People You’ve Never Met or Ever Expect to Meet?
Posted by Ivoryblossum: “Most of the people I follow on Twitter are people I’ve never met and probably never will meet. That’s what Twitter’s for. I have a great network of other IP attorneys from around the world in my Twitter stream; they’re often extremely helpful in answering questions, identifying resources and brainstorming through tricky issues. They are people I probably wouldn’t know otherwise because of the great physical distances between us.”
