Olympic Law

Nice post from Lisa McElroy (Drexal Law) on using the 2004 Men's Gymnastics controversy (where an unquestioned scoring error affected the outcome and resulted in Paul Hamm winning the all-around gold) to demonstrate the difference and intersection between law and justice, between following the rules or trying to produce the "best" results.

I'm getting old. I remember when we would use the 1972 Olympic Men's Basketball final, which had the added bonus of looking like they were just making the rules up as they went along (because they were).
