The common theme of these “Writing It Right” articles is that the courts’ use of well-known cultural references in their opinions invites advocates to enhance their briefs and other submissions with references to similar well-known cultural markers. Advocates’ appropriate references to Babe Ruth, a true cultural icon, fit the bill.
