A Gracious Article III Judge

After sending a copy of one of my recent publications to an Article III judge who I had criticized, the judge wrote back: 

“So fascinating—thank you for sending! For what it is worth, I often (and [I] did in [my recent published decision]) use the citation forms from Hart & Wechsler—see page ____ of the 7th edition. Perhaps consider adding Hart & Wechsler to your footnotes? When I err, I like to be in their company. And in any event, I am grateful for the education on this topic and [I] will cite your article the next time [the same issue] comes up.”
