I am a HUGE fan of the serial comma in most instances (especially in legal writing).  In this article, Susan Hankin at the University of Maryland Law School uses the reasoning of New York’s People v. Walsh to make a solid case for keeping that critical comma.  More importantly, her article makes the general case for paying attention to grammar in legal writing.  Kudos to John Hightower for posting this article on LinkedIn.
