Oh those amusing judges...

Here's a funny footnote from the dissent in the 9th Circuit opinion in Stewart v. Thorpe Holding Co. (2000):

"Notwithstanding the majority's views to the contrary, if this language--situated in a patch of florid prose at the very end of the opinion, well after the Seventh Circuit had completed its analysis--is not dicta, then there is no such thing as dicta at all."

Oh those lawyers and their law humor...

(Sorry, I was the one with the deleted comment. To bad for you because it was some great dicta.)

That's pretty awesome.

Also, you should change the heading on your blog, because you're not a student any more.

Also, Nell's not a law student.

Also, you never talk about prose rhythm.
