Well, in the legal profession, spelling and precision matter. You spelled the school's name wrong twice in the posts above.  
 
Why are you so defensive and easily drawn to arguing? Chill out. Geez.

Well x-zibit, your observation on the wrongful spelling was very helpful.  I believe you would make a very good “spell checker” for this forum and should apply for a job here doing just that since you'll probably get paid more than your current job  Wink .  I have been a professional IP attorney for probably more than you walked this earth (that's if your not older than 25).  From what I have been reading, the responses that PiP gave to ACD are actually helpful and legitimate responses.  Actual lawyers do not have the time to keep posting information here on this forum so people like PiP who know a lot would be the proper supplement.  From his experiences and insights he gives the proper perspective for people entering into this field.
 
PiP, keep up the good commenting.......
 
By the way, x-zibit since you have so much time on your hands and would want something positive to do, I would advise you to read the Terms of Use within this forum.

Thats funny. Well, your assumptions about my age, experience and salary are way off. Details and precision do matter. If they don't to you then your clients should be afraid.
 
By the way, the terms of use state, in bold, the following: "If you use the forums you do so entirely at your own risk."

I'm not all that concerned about the spelling of Cardozo.  But I am disappointed that no one mentioned the namesake of the law school, Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo (1870-1938).
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------ --------
excerpted from Social Security online:
 
Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo was a distinguished jurist who had been appointed to the court by President Hoover to fill the seat of the legendary Oliver Wendell Holmes. Modest in demeanor and with a strong philosophical bent, he was the author of four volumes of essays on the philosophy of law prior to being appointed to the court. Cardozo's view of the Constitution was in sympathy with Hamilton's, which he expressed this way: ". . .the great generalities of the Constitution have a content and a significance that vary from age to age. The method of free decision sees thru the transitory particulars and reaches what is permanent behind them."
 
One historian would describe his work this way: "Every law school graduate can recognize a Cardozo opinion by a quick perusal. His style is unmistakable: limpid clarity, conciseness suffused with a moral almost spiritual luminosity, and a command of historical material that is unrivaled in the entire common-law tradition. The beauty of his prose must be rated with those of the Greek and Roman classicists whose works he read in the original language for his own pleasure." 1 Another would appraise his place in history: "Except for Holmes himself, Justice Cardozo was the preeminent judge of the first half of the twentieth century. Indeed, Cardozo was the outstanding common-law jurist of the twentieth century." 2 And one biographical dictionary would summarize his legacy this way: "Shy and sensitive, immensely learned yet natively humble, Cardozo transcended the heated controversies of this day to take place as one of the dozen or so truly great judges in the Court's history."
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------ --------
excerpted from the Jewish Vertual Library
 
In 1932, President Herbert Hoover appointed Benjamin Nathan Cardozo to the Supreme Court of the United States. Cardozo was the second Jew, after Louis D. Brandeis, to serve on the nation’s highest court. Previously, Cardozo served as a judge on the New York State Supreme Court and as Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals. Throughout his distinguished career, Cardozo was shaped by his background as a Sephardic Jew.  
 
The Cardozo family is one of America’s oldest and most distinguished. Cardozo forebears were numbered among the founders of Congregation Shearith Israel, the oldest congregation in North America and the central, social institution of New York’s Sephardic community. One 18th-century forebear served as the first Jewish incorporator and trustee of Columbia University another helped found the New York Stock Exchange in 1792; and poet Emma Lazarus was his cousin.
 
Professor Roscoe Pound of Harvard considered Cardozo one of the ten best legal minds in American history, and his writings and opinions contributed greatly to the evolution of American common law. As a jurist and committed Jew, Justice Cardozo brought honor to the United States and to his people.
