Great line by the Virginia Supreme Court's in-house philosopher (and perhaps the next U.S. S.Ct. Justice)

"We state the factual allegations in the complaint in the light most favorable to the insurers, giving them the benefit of all reasonable inferences that arise from those allegations. However, we do not accept the veracity of conclusions of law camouflaged as factual allegations or inferences." 

-- Justice Arthur Kelsey of the Virginia Supreme Court in AGCS Marine Insurance Company v. Arlington County, June 15, 2017.


I've heard lawyers say some evil things, but this is the absolute worst:

'... Lawyer Bruce Christensen confirmed that the author has never met the boy, but denied that the youngster has expressed an interest in seeing his dad or is suffering from his absence.

“This is the first time I’m hearing about this,” Christensen said. “When a child never had a father, how would he know what to miss?

“This is no different from the hundreds of thousands of other children who have to live without a parent.”'
