Quote of the Day: From the otherwise entirely unfunny case of Pope v. State, 396 A.2d 1054, 1079 (Md. 1979):

Pope moved that we strike from the State's brief and appendix a selection from the Year Book of 1484 written in Medieval Latin and references thereto. The State provided no translation and conceded a total lack of knowledge of what it meant. The motion is granted.

(I wonder, though -- were they quoting the Latin record of the case, or the Year Book entry in law French?)
