Post or comment about a beloved judge? October 30, 2010 8:51 PM   Subscribe

I'm having a dickens of a time finding a post or comment (and possibly an AskMe spawned by the post) about a judge who was famous for his stylish and funny decisions, and even had an extensive fan website dedicated to him. Someone also linked to a blog that collected well-written or notable legal opinions. Can anyone help me find this post?

Is it Judge Kozinski, or some other judge?

I'm not sure this is quite what you're looking for, but was it this?

It's definitely Judge Kozinski! Finding that lead me to the fan site I remembered, as well as to the AskMe about "legal mumbo jumbo." That AskMe lead me to the blog/journal, The Green Bag, that I remembered as being so entertaining.

So he dove right for the bachelorette after she chose him, and then he got stood up? Odd. And he does bear a striking resemblance to Harlan Ellison, who was also on the Dating Game, but Ellison says that he was so intransigent and insulting that they destroyed the tape. Odd, also.

But Kosinski does seem to be fun in small doses. And I thought his name seemed familiar, so when I trawled my posting history, I did find this.

I am so tickled that someone named flibbertigibbet used the phrase "having a dickens of a time" in a sentence. It warms the cockles of my heart!

No snark intended; I mean that sincerely.

Harlan's been married a bunch of times, and seems to be unlucky in love, so I'm pretty sure he must be a shit to live with in real life, but my oh my he is one sexy man, cerebrally speaking.

Lord Denning fits your description ... except for the fact that I can't find a corresponding vote or comment

It took 10 comments in this thread before the thread had become completely different.

Either I need to count better, or we just aren't up to scruff in Meta today.

Reading the links in that AskMe wasted most of my afternoon.

Here I thought, beloved judge? Must be Florentino Floro.

The first thing that jumped to my mind was F. E. Smith.

I don't appreciate the use of the word dickens in the FPP. Let's please not use such sexist language.

How about dickens/ess? Ooh, that sounds even worse. Maybe we can invent a new word, like dickenperson.
