Posner calls brief a "gaunt, pathetic document"

In a good reminder about the importance of legal analysis, Judge Posner had some choice words for the attorneys who filed the opening brief in the case of Central States v. Lewis and Lashgari.  In the opinon, which can be found here, Posner criticizes the "tiny" 118 word argument as "gaunt" and "pathetic."  All the more reason to emphasize deep legal analysis to our brief-writing students this time of year!
