Dictum vs. Holding
So I find it interesting that a law professor is excited about a column by a reporter (who studied law at Yale) that references and quotes as its sole legal authority a quote taken from a legal opinion in which the judge, as dictum, quoted dictum. For goodness sake.
Please, all you law profs, stop bringing back this sort of memory of law school. Some things, I would prefer to forget.
