Over at the Volokh Conspiracy, Prof. Volokh has a post about the "Mr. Ed rule" in the filing of amicus curiae (friend-of-the-court) briefs, and quotes Scott Bullock of the Institute for Justice:
We have long followed what we call the "Mr. Ed" rule on amicus briefs. . . . Mr.
Ed (the talking horse) only spoke "when he had something to say." And that
is our approach. We don't do amicus briefs unless we feel like we can bring a unique perspective, voice, or insight into the case.
I think the "Mr. Ed rule" could be applied to a lot of people's daily lives - don't talk unless you actually have something to say!
