Shirley Abrahamson quote of the day

If there was ever any doubt about this provision's textual opacity, the conclusive evidence is that the majority requires four paragraphs of judicial analysis, including two dedicated to the absence of a single comma, just to decide which words should be cobbled together to form a proper sentence.
The Chief delivers a lesson in statutory construction, ¶¶ 55-79.

Earlier: Gableman schooled.
