Please, lawyers, please, stop writing “X statute provides in pertinent part.” Several reasons. First,you’re probably not using it right, because you’re quoting the whole statute. Second, if you’re only quoting part of the statute, then your use of ellipses will let us all know and your “pertinent part” becomes redundant. Third, the cliched alliteration just sounds ridiculous.
