Two: This was like…seriously, he was such a jerk. He was like “There are some problems with your writing sample. You used an exclamation mark here, and not a period, and I think it’s very unprofessional. Then we had the, “So what happened with your grades” discussion. I’m like “They were bad. My parents didn’t die, I don’t have a good excuse.” And then, there’s an awkward pause, because this was just the most painful experience of my life. So we’re sitting there, and the guy goes, “so, do you sing?” And I said “Excuse me.”

Student 2: For the principle of it!
Professor: Well. Usually, with the Tax Court, there are several issues that must be resolved, so it's very possible that this was excerpted from the larger case. And usually, when the casebook editor excerpts a case like that they'll include a little asterisk to tell you what else was going on in the case. And since I AM the casebook editor, I think it's safe to say that the casebook editor forgot to do that here.
