Judge Posner talks to the NY Times about his sudden retirement

“I pay very little attention to legal rules, statutes, constitutional provisions,” Judge Posner said. “A case is just a dispute. The first thing you do is ask yourself — forget about the law — what is a sensible resolution of this dispute?”


RTWT. Why do we even have judges? Why do we have law?

Just a hint of fascism to that, if you ask me. Is "fascism" accurate? Maybe megalomania? Anyway, something rude. Oi, Posner, yer paid to apply the bloody law not to indulge yourself. Ah, I know the word. As hoi polloi would say, "wanker!".
