A "deviously eclectic method of argument"."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.

The problem was, apparently, he failed to bring to the court's attention federal (civilian) cases that did not support his position.
