At the 2010 Federalist Society National Lawyers Convention, Judge Easterbrook remarked that he recently purchased a house, and did not read a single word of the 100 pages of RESPA disclosure documents. He had this to say:
“I didn’t read one word. I have a life to live.”
Judge Posner made much the same point a few months ago at the ACS convention.
“I tried to extend my home equity line of credit. The bank gave me hundreds of pages. I didn’t read them. I just signed them.”
