Legal Wit — The Law: Not an Ass. This Time

Legal Wit — The Law: Not an Ass. This Time

The Dickensian character, Mr. Bumble, upon being advised that the law supposes that his wife acts under his direction, exclaimed "if the law supposes that, the law is a ass — a idiot". Since that time, commentators and pundits of every stripe have embraced the phrase "the law is an ass". Notwithstanding the best efforts of legislators and judges, I expect, from time to time, the law is still an ass. Not this time.
