"New judge blasts Prenda’s 'attorney speak'"
Actual quote, emphasis added:
"the Court was unable to nail down any specific lies due, in significant part, to plaintiff’s counsel excellent 'attorney speak'"

Actual quote with full context:
"While the Court was unable to nail down any specific lies due, in significant part, to plaintiff’s counsel excellent 'attorney speak,' the misrepresentations and half-truths presented indicate plaintiff’s counsel’s clear disrespect of the Court."
I've criticized Cory in the past for occasional sloppy mischaracterizations of articles, but in this case I think he is correct. Your "correction", Jorpho, is the misleading one, not Cory's post. The judge was dissing the "attorney speak", and calling it insufficient to get the plaintiffs off the hook, not praising it.
