For those interested in litigation strategy, also often applicable to scholarly debate, see Judge Learned Hand’s approbation of a distinguished lawyer who had the wisdom to rely on his strongest argument: “He dared to rest his case upon its strongest point, and so avoided the appearance of weakness and uncertainty which comes of a clutter of arguments. Few lawyers are willing to do this; it is a mark of the most distinguished talent.” “In Memory of Charles Neave,” in Irving Dilliard, ed., The Spirit of Liberty, Papers and Addresses of Learned Hand (New York: Knopf, 1959), p. 97.
