When Is a Fish Not a Tangible Object? -- A Collision of Law and Grammar

This is the kind of stuff I love  -- the 9 learned Justices of the United States Supreme Court bantering on the issue whether a fish is a "tangible object."  At stake -- whether a commercial fisherman will be branded a convicted felon.

The answer in this case is "no."  Grammarians, enjoy.

Yates v. United States, 574 U. S. ___ (2015) (No. 13–7451, Feb. 25, 2015)
