CASE ENTRY

Wilson v. Safelite Group, Inc.

In the Sixth Circuit, Judges Thapar and Stranch debate the utility of corpus linguistics. That’s the study of how language works through the examination of large datasets—say, looking in a database of millions of newspaper articles for examples of how a specific word is used. Judge Thapar sees a boon to textual interpretation; Judge Stranch wants the law to mostly steer clear. All this, friends, in an ERISA decision.
