Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Spectrum Community Ass'n (Cal. Ct. App. - July 31, 2006)

You've got to love the brevity of the last sentences of each of the first three paragraphs of this opinion by Justice Moore:

Paragraph One, after describing appellee's principal contention on appeal, concludes with: "No dice."

Paragraph Two, after describing appellant's argument, concludes: "We agree."

Paragraph Three, after a brief description of the dispositive issue, concludes: "We reverse and remand."

Thirty-eight pages follow these three brief paragraphs. But the first page really said it all.
