When Size Doesn't Matter

An unnamed (to save his children further embarrassment) doctor who had been convicted of indecent exposure, has lost his appeal. His lawyer (named Dick, of course) claimed the defendant's 2.8 inch pee-pee was too small to be seen by the arresting officer. In a 30 page decision, the three judge panel unanimously disagreed and upheld the conviction.
The bottom line: This is a case that could be described as de minimis, a legal term defined by Black's Law Dictionary as "1. Trifling, minimal. 2. (Of a fact or thing) so insignificant that a court may overlook it in deciding an issue or case."
