Dear Editor:
This is getting silly. Douglas Duerr was correct in his letter of 8/22, as you graciously conceded at the time, that the phrase "to remand back" a case from a higher to a lower tribunal is redundant. "Remand" has within it the sense of "back" ( you can't remand something forward.) To the "immigration Atty. in Minnesota" (remember--the top English student graduate from a major university, former law review member and published author--blimey!), I recommend more careful reading of texts before firing off lengthy replies to things not said. Brother Duerr's criticism was not of a helpful re-statement in plain English of a legalism possibly unfamiliar to some readers, but of a semi-literate misuse (surely accidental!) of the language, akin to a restaurant patron inquiring as to the ingredients of the "soup du jour of the day," my personal favorite. Oh, yes--and it's "tautology," not "totology." Hang in there, Doug!

Jane A. Hanson, Attorney at Law
