A new challenger has arrived!
As the Internet has been generally uninterested in the completely non-controversial eighth mainline entry into the space opera series known as Star Wars since the film's release in 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals thought it made sense to make its own stance on the film (and its successor) known...by means of a formal legal opinion.
But what is the purpose of pop culture references in legal opinions? Well, that depends a lot on the purpose of the opinions themselves.
It's okay Disney, failure is the greatest teacher; or so we've been told…in Virtual Legality.
