Another Vocab Lesson Bites The Dust

California jurors to get simpler law lessons - in the form of swapped out complex words.

This could be a good thing, since plain language is generally the way to go.

However, in a system where the definition of "is" absolutely causes close investigation and fervent argument, changing words can be dangerous. Stupidly dangerous, true, but dangerous nonetheless. Keeps more lawyers employed, though. That's always nice. Sorta.
