David Lat Has Coined Three Words in Black’s Law Dictionary (and I got a slang tweet from Garner)

January 27th, 2014

Kudos to David Lat for coning three new words added to the newest edition of Black’s Law Dictionary: bench-slap, judicial diva, and litigatrix.

And, Bryan Garner confirmed that “neck doily” is now slang for Jabot!


And “doily” is preferred to “doiley.”

Update: Here is a screen shot from the 10th Edition of Black’s Dictionary for Jabot.
