Interesting article. I don't agree, though, that interpretive dispute reflects a failure of the legal system. Certainty is an important value, but not always the prime or dominant value, as this might suggest.Isn't flexibility and nuanced response to novel situations one of the great strengths of a legal system? If so, then disputation based on intepretation of general principles in response to specific situations is not only inevitable, but central to an effective legal system.
