Eugene Volokh noted on his blog this evening:

 >>How Appealing noted an opinion by Judge Frank Easterbrook last week,
to point out (among other things) that "Judge Easterbrook does not forgo
using 'forego' to mean 'to do without.'" (The full phrase in the opinion
was "the insurers contend that Freedom’s willingness to forego the
collection of any deficiency ....")

He then went on to present an extensive discussion of the use of
"forgo/forego" in judicial opinions.

I just thought I'd flag the post. For direct URL references to the
Easterbrook opinion and How Appealing coverage, follow the link above.
