Quote of the Day: Law-and-Econ Types Don’t Like to Waste Time

I didn’t read one word. I have a life to live.

– Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook, explaining that he didn’t read the 100 pages of RESPA disclosure documents when he recently purchased a house.

(Gavel bang: Josh Blackman, who notes that Judge Easterbrook’s colleague, Judge Richard Posner, previously said essentially the same thing.)
