Romantic Sonnets

with 2 comments

From National Dev. Co. v. Triad Holding Corp.

“We are called upon only to determine whether the Olympic Tower apartment was Khashoggi’s ‘dwelling house or usual place of abode,’ terms that have eluded ‘any hard and fast definition.’  Indeed, those quaint terms are now archaic and survive only in religious hymns, romantic sonnets and, unhappily, in jurisdictional statutes.”

File this under – Court Humor.

  1. I want to write laws. I need some outlet for my capacious vocabulary. My job only allows the use of five-or-fewer letter words. With a strong emphasis on four letter words. Which is fucking fine, I guess.
