In the US, legal case names in federal civil forfeitures are formulated thus: "United States v. <item being seized>".

This leads to some entertaining case titles. Particularly well-known are "United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins" and "United States v. Article Consisting of 50,000 Cardboard Boxes More or Less, Each Containing One Pair of Clacker Balls".

@noelle United States vs. 20 chicken-sized horses or one horse-sized chicken.
