What's in a name? that which we call a rose



What's in a name? that which we call a rose*

Professor Michael Froomkin, Laurie Silvers & Mitchell Rubenstein Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Miami School of Law, referring to a response to a motion submitted to the court by an assistant attorney general for the State of Tennessee, states “I’ve seen half-a-dozen links to this unique and amazing pleading but the world will be a better place with one more.”

Here is yet another link to the pleading. 

Professor Froomkin summaries the situation as follows:

“The setup is that the prosecutor wanted the Judge to order the defense ‘not to refer to the Assistant District Attorney General as “the Government” during trial.'" Seems they thought being called “the government” was prejudicial or derogatory or hurt their feelings or something. Defense hits it out of the park. The really good stuff starts at the bottom of page two.” 

* William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
