Famous quotes containing the words officer and/or case:

    That’s all right, sir. A commanding officer doesn’t need brains, just a good, loud voice.
    Cyril Hume, and Fred McLeod Wilcox. Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon)

    I do not allow myself to be moved by anything except the law. If there has been a mistake in the law, or if I think there has been perjury or injustice, I will weigh the petition most carefully, but I do not permit myself to be moved by more harrowing details, and I try to treat each case as if I was reviewing it or hearing it for the first time from the bench.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
