Blawgletter added set in style to our blawgroll awhile back. A recent visit reminded us why.
The post, "Recuse Who?", points out that the verb recuse — as a transitive one — requires not only a subject but also an object. A judge (subject) thus can't simply recuse. He or she (subject) must recuse himself or herself (object).
Why do judges treat a transitive verb as an intransitive one?
Bonus: The U.S. Supreme Court held this week that a state court judge violated due process by not recusing (himself).
