One Reason I Dislike Reading Supreme Court Opinions
Posted by Gordon Smith

The first sentence of Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board reads: "Our Constitution divided the 'powers of the new Federal Government into three defined categories, Legislative, Executive, and Judicial.' INS v. Chadha , 462 U. S. 919, 951 (1983)."

We needed a secondary source citation for that proposition? Or maybe the Chief Justice used the quotation for the original way in which Chadha framed the idea? 

One of many reasons I dislike reading Supreme Court opinions is that many of them read like they were written by law review editors.

Do you have a citation for that?
