A Quip Too Far? Update

I’ve updated my May 17 “A Quip Too Far?” post with a link to more recent, and quite excellent, commentary on the unorthodox opinion in Funny Cide Ventures, LLC v. Miami Herald, and am providing this separate post for those who already read my previous post and aren’t likely to see the update in it.  Matt Conigliaro of Abstract Appeal promised last week to follow up on his original post, and he delivers a winner with his explanation of why it may be impossible to make judicial opinions understandable to non-lawyers and still have them adequately serve their function as precedent.
