Bill and Ted Would Approve

Justice Kagan's recent opinion in the Omnicare case has garnered attention for her use of "way" as an adverb: She concludes Omnicare "way overstates" the breadth of a law. Justice Kagan's known for her way cool writing style, so I’m not surprised to see her drop interesting colloquial phrases into her opinions. In fact, I hope she’ll continue to do so—she provides great fodder for me and others interested in judicial opinion writing.

I think 80s time travelers Bill and Ted would totally have a cow over the bodacious Justice Kagan’s gnarly opinion.
