Appellate judges let their hair down Here, from an intermediate appellate court in California, is an opinion of the type that's always fun to see: a unanimous opinion in formal legal language reaching a certain result, with a concurrence JOINED BY THE WHOLE COURT explaining in colorful and human language why the decision is a little crazy even if legally correct. The opinion is about a fee award to class action lawyers; the facts are so unique that it doesn't make much precedent, but it's fun to read.
