(The Return of) Ignatz, by Sam Heldman

Monday, May 05, 2003

Marty Lederman -- taking a deserved break from long posts about campaign finance -- remarks this morning about what he finds to be a rather unusual legal usage of the word "dehors" (meaning, more or less, "beyond") in the opinion this morning in Telemarketing Assocs. Marty has apparently spent too little time among Southern lawyers; I have, unless I am dreaming, more than once heard a lawyer indignantly complain about his or her opponent during oral argument, "Now Judge, he's de-hoorin' the record!" (meaning, more or less, stating facts that aren't supported by evidence).
