Fast-forward to today, when another 4/3 Justice, never one to let a great turn of phrase go to waste, begins his opinion here like this:
Occasionally we are faced with a difficult question of statutory interpretation that qualifies as a "Halbert’s Lumber issue." (E.g. Halbert’s Lumber, Inc. v. Lucky Stores, Inc. (1992) 6 Cal.App.4th 1233, 1235 ["a real doozy of a puzzle"].)
Just as plainly, it's Justice Beds. So, hey, all you brief writers and opinion drafters, here's a phrase you can try in your own work. Maybe.
P.S. Want more Beds today? Enjoy fn.23 here for a 4th wall breaker of sorts.
