Clear as Mud

Edward H. Cooper, the Thomas H. Cooley Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School, was quoted in today's New York Times story on overlong judicial opinions coming down from the U.S. Supreme Court, under the leadership of John Roberts.

Half of the Damn Arbor regular staff had Professor Cooper for first-year civil procedure (aka CivPro), which introduces law students to the rules for proceeding through civil lawsuits in the federal courts, and it's nice to see our professors quoted in the paper of record. Indeed, the school regularly updates a page devoted to faculty mentions in the news. For my part, I can only wonder why the Times didn't ask Prof. Cooper about imaginary car crashes at the corner of Hill and State, but maybe that's for a follow-up interview on overly-complex CivPro hypotheticals.
