What's being said

  • Robert Begotka

    Judge Posner‘s main point is that a report prepared by the lawyer hired by one side of a dispute is not objective and therefore presumptively unreliable. Of course, I‘m not objective either because I consider Posner to be a legal Titan!

  • Christopher Hoffman

    Judge Posner is indeed a national treasure. I am so grateful for his intellectual honesty, particularly in the Moore case. This is a man who, ostensibly no fan of an armed citizenry, nevertheless applied the Second Amendment as defined in Heller v DC and McDonald v Chicago. with unflinching veracity. God Bless Judge Posner and may he serve as long as he is able.

  • Avon

    Hey, if we‘re going to have a mudfight, why do we hear so little from one guy (despite the title of the article) and so much in response to him?

    The headline should be, "Posner Makes a Point - and it‘s ignored."

  • Darren McKinney

    As much as this longtime fan of Judge Posner may hate to consider the possibility, the judge may be approaching that Dan Rather/Pierre Salinger stage in his career when he doesn‘t seem to know when to stop talking.
