  1. This is a hugely important subject. One of the reasons I retired from trial law after 22 years was frustration due to judicial tendancy to first determine an outcome he felt appropriate, then work backwards to make it apparently fit the legislation. In a newspaper interview after retirement, a judge was asked if he found difficult applying law he disagreed with. He responded that the law was so elaborate that a judge could always manage to do what he felt was right.
