"Benjamin Nathan Cardozo was a distinguished American jurist who is remembered not only for his landmark decisions on negligence but also his modesty, philosophy and writing style, which is considered exceptionally appealing and readable".

I like his Contracts opinions too.  The Allegheny College one was awesome.  That dude could write with a fluorish -- sometimes ridiculous, mostly very convincing and remarkable.


 



lol


justice wright, will you give us your opinion on why the alphabet is in that order?

Cardozo's opinion are definitely fun to read. Of the ones I've had in my casebooks, he reaches the logical result about 20% of the time. For instance, in Duff-Gordon, he sprinkles magical fairy dust and creates contractual terms out of thin air. Cardozo is credited to some extent with helping destroy contract law as we knew it, mostly by putting his own sense of equity ahead of logic. If I am to read poorly decided, but well written opinions, I would prefer if they were written by, say, Steven Wright. He is far more amusing.

Hey, Society: By "Richard Daley is a f**cking piece of *&^% .. he supports gay marriage and rumors circulate that he's gay himself ..." do you mean that not being a bigot equals being a piece of *&^%, or are the two points unrelated? 

I'm kind of new to this board, so maybe I missed a joke--I kind of doubt anyone could say something like that and be serious...
