Letter: Terence Cooke, Middleburg

Editor: I am a retired attorney. It has been 50 years since I sat in my 1L constitutional law class. But I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed your contributor Ben Lenhart’s article in this week’s edition of Loudoun Now in which he so deftly explains our Constitution’s basis for its “unnamed rights” as it relates to the leaked draft opinion in the abortion rights challenge. 

Whatever your personal views on this highly charged issue, you would do yourself a favor by reading Mr. Lenhart’s well-crafted explanation of the bounds in which the Supreme Court operates when it considers such matters. 

This was just the latest in what I have come to look forward to in Mr. Lenhart’s legal critiques. Please keep him among your contributing columnists.

    Yes, I agree with Terence Cooke. Ben Lenhart explains complicated legal matters in a way that’s understandable to the layperson. He does so without talking down to people. That’s much appreciated. Sometimes I read scholarly journals & I’m more confused after reading the article than before! That’s not the case with Mr. Lenhart’s columns. Please keep them coming!

      Well, I’ll be. Timmy was being honest. Just like the rest of the LCPS board members, they have never understood a piece of research or case law. Kind of explains how LCPS became a criminal cartel.
