For example, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954).
"Brown versus Board of Education of Topeka, three-forty-seven you-ess four-eighty-three, nineteen-fifty-four?" Or would this full title never be read like this at all? "Brown and Board of Education?" "Brown against?"
What about things like et al.? Bonus points for district courts, local courts, etc. Super bonus points for other countries.
