Matthew McConaughey, “The Bachelor,” “Star Wars” and “Hamilton”: All very different pieces of pop culture, but they all managed to end up in a judge’s opinion this week. And much like reactions to each of the references themselves, the response to their inclusion wasn’t universally positive.

Talk of how—and whether—judges should invoke pop culture in their rulings resurfaced this week, thanks to an opinion by Judge Kenneth Lee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. In a generally clearly written opinion, Lee, on behalf of the panel in the case, sent a class action settlement back to the trial court in a dispute over the legal fees set in the proposed settlement.
