I VOLUNTEER

In Uncategorized on 04/06/2016 at 23:43

Long ago I learned a mantra that served me in good stead: “Salute whatever moves, paint whatever doesn’t, and never volunteer.”

Well, there are exceptions. And today I make another exception to that time-honored rule abovequoted.

As Ch J Michael B (“Iron Mike”) Thornton marks off the days on his short-timer’s calendar, Tax Court will need to start grooming someone to proofread the orders issuing therefrom.

I cannot think Judge Marvel looks forward with relish to that particular detail.

But something must be done when a sentence in an order from Judge Kerrigan reads thus: “It is not ground for objection that information sought will not be inadmissible at trial if the information appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.” VHC, Inc., and Subsidiaries, Docket No. 4756-15, filed 4/6/16, at p.1.

Judge, didn’t you mean “It is not ground for objection that information sought will be inadmissible at trial if the information appears reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.”?

I will not here repeat the story of the “conversation easement,” more particularly bounded and described in my blogpost “The Proofreader’s Reward,” 2/16/16.

As it seems I am proofreading unofficially, I volunteer to do so officially. And I will do so solely for the honor; no expense to the government.
