Poole v. Orange County Fire Authority (Cal. Supreme Ct. - Aug. 24, 2015)

Justice Cuellar writes a concurrence in an otherwise unanimous case just to make clear his view that "plain" statutory language isn't always necessarily clear.  Or dispositive.  You've instead got to look at the statute as a whole.

It's five (double-spaced) pages worth reading.

If only because it's from a justice we're just starting to get to know.
