And we will know you by your font.

Wow. Howard Bashman figures out that Richard Posner wrote the per curiam opinion in a case by knowing his propensity to use the Book Antiqua font. That's the coolest nerdy law thing ever.

It all goes back to the same biblical phrase: we will know them by their fruits.

It's a good, readable font, too. :-) I don't like it as much as Garamond, Georgia, or Times New Roman, but I use it occasionally myself.

Now that is a cool nerdy law thing! I'll have to give Book Antiqua a go, though plain old Arial suits me, mainly because it's not Times New Roman. Interesting!
