"Dissenting in Large Part"

We may need a new Bluebook rule in light of today's dissent by Chief Judge Kozinski in Gonzalez v. Arizona (see pg. 63 of the slip opinion).

What's next? "Mostly dissenting" (a la Princess Bride)? Or "Only Concurring a Little?"

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "Dissenting in Large Part":


well "concurring in part and dissenting in part", or just "dissenting in part" is completely normal.

maybe they will correct it in the reporter

either way there is no need for a new bluebook rule, because any non majority opinion is quoted the same way in the bluebook (smith j. blanking) or (smith j. blanking in part)

"Quibbling over the details" would be nice.

Actually, I like "dissenting in large part." It's much better than the more common "concurring dubitante."

Concurring in name only?
