Green Bag’s Justice Stephen G. Breyer Bobblehead

Justice Stephen G. Breyer BobbleheadThe latest sitting Supreme Court Justice to be memorialized in ceramic is Justice Stephen G. Breyer. Professor Ross E. Davies, editor-in-chief of the Green Bagunveiled the bobblehead as part of the law journal’s series of Supreme Court Justices.

Justice Breyer is depicted on a bicycle, which symbolizes the criminal procedure cases of Illinois v. Lidster, 540 U.S. 419 (2004), and Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders of County of Burlington, 132 S. Ct. 1510 (2012). The number on the bicycle’s license plate is a reference to U.S. v. Booker, 543 U.S. 220 (2005). Next to the Justice are five sheep and one cow, representing the Supreme Court case of Public Lands Council v. Babbitt, 529 U.S. 728 (2000).

For more information about the cases symbolized in the bobblehead’s design, see the Annotated Justice Stephen G. Breyer Bobblehead on the Green Bag’s website.
