    If I'm not mistaken, the DeWines are a ubiquitous OH political family and an offshoot of the Tafts. It's like being a "Lee" in Virginia in the 19th century.

      There are a lot of really... interesting... notes in it. Like these:



      This was particularly bizarre:


      The dissent responded with:


      So, the majority said "Ohio SC has never issued a joint dissent." The dissent replies with "UH DID YOU SEE THE SCOTUS DID THIS YESTERDAY?!"
      HUH?


      The whole thing reads like a screamfest.

      Why is it that once law grads get hired as clerks they start using stilted and outdated language like "herein," aforesaid," etc? And why would their bosses not edit them out?

          Maybe they think it makes them sound smart, but I'm not so sure of that. Most law-trained people I know understand that it's babble, and I'm quite sure non-law-trained people think it's pretentious crap.

          • My guess is it's because they carry legal meaning. The lawyers at my company made us clean up the language in our standards with more clear and specific wording. Shall/must/etc was the big one.

              Shall vs will is incredibly important in Contracts.

                That's the point, though. Words like hereinafter and aforesaid do not carry specific legal meaning. They are usually just signs of lazy writing, IMO. Keep in mind I"m talking about judicial opinions and briefs. Contracts are different and are most often just forms modified to fit a specific situation, though some are very sophisticated.

                Kep, "will" is usually considered a word to avoid in written agreements, at least as it pertains to a duty to perform. The choice is most often between shall and may.

                    You are most definitely not dumb, and you make a good point as to that kind of legal writing.
