Quote of the Day

A "deviously eclectic method of argument"."

From, John S. Cooke, Book Review: They Call It Justice, by Luther C. West. 53 INDIANA L. J. 4 (1977).

Cooke's description of a likely ethics violation is quaint. A court-martial is a federal proceeding and during one case a counsel asserted that a number of states (non-federal) court decisions favored his position. The problem was, apparently, he failed to bring to the court's attention federal (civilian) cases that did not support his position.
