Capital offense

Via Ray, this AL& P post describes an opinion in which, among other things, the Court zinged the Government for failure to capitalize the word "Court:"

"Judge Gilmore further used this opportunity to excoriate the Government for its lack of decorum, and also for its incorrect capitalization as mandated by The Bluebook. See, e.g., Dec. 29, 2004, Order at 5 n.1 (“In addition to capitalizing ‘Court’ when naming any court in full or when referring to the U.S. Supreme Court, practitioners should also capitalize ‘Court’ in a court document when referring to the court that will be receiving that document.” The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation P. 6(a) at 17 (Columbia Law Review Ass’n et al. eds., 17th ed. 2000)”)."
