    It's funny how when the police gun certain people down it's the victims fault for breaking some law in the first place, but when everything is done by the book we are going down a dangerous path. I wonder what the difference could be?

    But I think that client communications with an attorney are sacrosanct and I'm not that excited to see that chipped away at.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    You ever seen The Firm with Tom Cruise? Or read the book? I wouldn't be so high and mighty about what is and isn't sacrosanct.

    Projection. Conservatives would do it in a heartbeat for political gain, so scream and howl about it as a possibility.

    Yeah, I'm finding lately that projection is a term I should have been more in tune with a long time ago.

    BS. There is no one who whines more about judges and their decisions here in Cafe than our resident lefties. Someone who dropped down from space and read a years worth of the posts of you guys would conclude that we have the most politically corrupt judiciary of all time.

    Spectacular. We're now holding our legal system up to comparison with a Tom Cruise movie?

    I think the judiciary is the only thread left holding America from the GOP fascist state, so don't lump me in.

    But you gotta admit, that's not really a high bar.

    That's fair. I was probably too broad with my indictment, but there is no question that an unfortunate number of our friends on the left on this Board repeatedly complain about the political corruption of our judiciary.

    I can only say I don't recall seeing that though I may be blind to it. BTW I love the Learned Hand quote.

    I'm primarily thinking about Supreme Court discussions, since we pretty rarely discuss decisions of lower courts.

    It's funny, I've had that quote in my signature for probably 10+ years now and I don't think anyone else has either recognized it, or perhaps Googled it, or cared for that matter.

    I've always thought it was a good quote for internet discussion forums.
