A Wise Wrinkled Green Thing

Benjamin Cardozo, then Chief Justice of the highest court of New York state, appears to be preemptively channeling Yoda in his opinion in Moch Co. v. Rensselaer Water Co., 159 N.E. 896 (N.Y. 1928): "A time-honored formula often phrases the distinction as one between misfeasance and nonfeasance. Incomplete the formula is, and so at times misleading."

Seriously -- was he high, or what?
