Minnesota bankruptcy judge, cont'd

I love Kressel's admonition to attorneys to stop capitalizing with abandon.  He notes that capitalization should be limited to proper names, and his strict approach to capitalization is even more limiting than the Bluebook's.  I also appreciate his plea to attorneys to use articles. When my 1-L's don't use articles, the cause is sometimes their quoting a headnote rather than the opinion itself.  I have no clue what excuse to offer for others' non-use!
