Judge Janice Rogers Brown of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit opens an opinion released today quoting Jimi Hendrix.
Forty years ago Jimi Hendrix trilled his plaintive query: "Is this love, baby, or is it … [just] confusion?" JIMI HENDRIX, Love or Confusion, on ARE YOU EXPERIENCED (Reprise Records 1967). In this False Claims Act case, we face a similar question involving a mortgage subsidy program initiated in that era: Is this fraud, or is it . . . just confusion?
Alas, the rest of the brief opinion is not all that interesting.
