Yale Preserves Bobblehead Dolls for Future Generations of Supreme Court Superfans

The university's law library, which is said to have the "best collection of rare law books in the world after Harvard and the Library of Congress," is now focused on preserving toys depicting Supreme Court justices.

A description from the Times:

"The bobblehead of Justice David H. Souter, for instance, wears heavy gold jewelry and sits on a lifeguard stand, reminders of his opinions in a copyright case involving the rap group 2 Live Crew, and a sexual harassment case brought by a female lifeguard. In a second copyright case, Justice Souter referred to "the latest release by Modest Mouse"; his bobblehead plays a snippet of a song by the band."
