DISCUSSION: The start and the end of the same paragraph provides the answer: CLS advocates say that any legal decision will be irrational (arbitrary).
- CORRECT. CLS proponents say the existence of equally good solutions mean that choosing a solution is arbitrary.
- This isn’t a problem. Every legal question involves considering values. Everyone knows that. But CLS proponents say there is no rational way to choose between values. Meyerson disagrees. (lines 17-18)
- Moral weight? Morality isn’t even discussed until the final paragraph.
- This is a version of the “problem” identified by CLS advocates. Meyerson disagrees there is a problem, even when we truly can’t choose. Both good choices are better than the infinite amount of bad choices.
- Nothing in the third paragraph talks about what criteria we need to use to judge a solution.
