Talk:Plurality opinion

Return to "Plurality opinion" page.


Is it just me, or is this sentence/article missing a few words? --AlanS 21:49, 22 November 2008 (EST)

the sentance reads ok to me , but its a bit confusing as written. Markr 22:21, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Oh, okay! Thanks for the edit, it's much clearer now. That extra "because" confused me there since it made me think that something was missing. --AlanS 22:30, 22 November 2008 (EST)
This one is hard to explain in encyclopedic language. It is when you have 5 out of the nice justices saying that party X should win the case but when not all of them agree with why that is. You will then get a plurality opinion which is the opinion of most of the justices that say party X should win. Hope this helps (and that perhaps someone can think of a better way of putting it into the article) --WillB 22:49, 22 November 2008 (EST)
It may be wrong but I treat entries as intended for high school level and try to be as clear as possible. If that takes longer , or an example thats fine to me. The original text was fine but I hope I kept the meaning while making it easier to read. I tried to break it into two sentances , but couldnt :( cheers Markr 23:16, 22 November 2008 (EST)
