The U.S. Supreme Court docket Cites MSCD

In this submit from final November, I famous that the U.S. Solicitor Normal had cited A Handbook of Type for Contract Drafting of their temporary in a case earlier than the U.S. Supreme Court docket involving a dispute over an and, Pulsifer v. U.S. Nicely, two days in the past the opposite shoe dropped: of their opinion in that case (right here), the U.S. Supreme Court docket cites MSCD. (The dissent cites it too.)

I loved that the court docket’s opinion cites each The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language and MSCD. Each works bear the mark of Rodney Huddleston. He’s co-author of CGEL, however as well as it’s due to him that MSCD‘s evaluation of what I name “ambiguity of the half versus the entire” is smart. (See this 2020 weblog submit for extra about that.)

I additionally loved discovering out for myself that the court docket had cited me. I had thought they could, so each few weeks I’d verify to see whether or not they had issued the opinion. Once I checked final Friday, I spotted that the opinion had been issued three hours beforehand, so I rapidly discovered it, looked for “Adams”, then double and triple checked. 🙂
