Harris v. Maricopa County Superior Ct. (9th Cir. - Jan. 20, 2011)

Judge Reinhardt writes an opinion.  Judge Bybee concurs in part but dissents in part.  Not surprising.

But Judge Bybee wants to make sure you know a little bit more.  Even if you only read one line of the 50 single-spaced pages.

So rather than "Judge Bybee, concurring in part and dissenting in part," he makes sure the opening description reads:

"Bybee, Circuit Judge, concurring in the judgment in part, but mostly dissenting:"

"Mostly dissenting."  Nice touch.
