this "pled" v "pleaded" v "plead" (past tense and pronounced 'pled')thread having strayed faaaaar afield of the specific words and usagesfor which I signed up, I'm outta here. Farewell.

As one who drafts opinions daily, this is a subject of great interest.Most (if not all) the balance of my nine-member intermediate Court of Appealsuses "pleaded". All but myself and one other Justice have never stepped foot in a criminal courtroom as counsel to either the State or the citizen accused.I've insisted my staff use "pled". But, let's face it, it looks weird. I'm with Uncle Bob (April 13, 2011, 8:06pm)...and think it makes best sense to use "pled", pronounce it "pled" and spell it "plead".
