Ambiguity: Comment from Judge Williams
I understand that the judge confronted with decent briefs in a moderately close case doesn't ask the question of how "ordinary readers" would interpret the statute. My point is simply that I don't see the study as offering evidence on the marginal gain (in reducing judicial non-neutrality) to be had from judges' asking themselves that question."
