D.C. Circuit Diagrams a Sentence,

right there on p. 6 of today's U.S. v. Villanueva-Sotelo. Not sure this adds much, especially given that -- according to the court -- "[i]n the end, this grammatical observation is beside the point given that the parties, as well as relevant case law ..., are best understood as using the word 'modify' more loosely" than how it is understood "from a grammatical point of view." Still, this struck me as noteworthy. Plus the case creates a circuit split, so maybe sentence diagramming may come to the Supreme Court.
