How to Read this Blog: Wine or Fine Ales Required

Many of the words and phrases used here will take you back to your school days of boring civics lessons. Think not of these images as they are tiresome and a stain upon the subject matter.

Think instead of several comfortable leather chairs positioned around a roaring fire in the central hearth of a Boston tavern in the 1780s. Think of the contents of these chairs being John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, or any other of your favorite founding fathers and you. Such as these would not sit and quietly stare at the fire making idle banter about how cold it was outside. Rather, the Madeira would flow as the discourse raged.

Now you are in the proper mindset to read what follows.

Herein you will come across an in depth analysis of the facts of certain cases. Remember at all times that that facts of these cases are not as important as what the case stands for, and how it relates to the overall structure of the law. Once you have that down, you can go back again and examine the facts for any extra significance they have.

I provide the facts only for you to read out of interest or curiosity (some of the fact patterns are quite twisted and interesting). So don’t get caught up in the facts. The holdings of the cases are the important things.

So sit back, pop the cork on some wine, and have fun with what follows.
