Coded Judgment

The Judge in the 'Baigent and Leigh v. Random House' case, i.e. the Dan Brown/'Da Vinci Code' plagiarism case, is apparently a big fan of the book himself, because he has left his own coded message in his Judgment. The Times has this article concerning the code and a link to the judgement itself.

Mr. Justice Smith has left certain letters in italics and the key to understanding the code is apparently itself in 'Da Vinci Code' and 'Holy Blood Holy Grail'.

This reminds me of one episode in the TV series 'West Wing' in which the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court began writing his Judgments in verse, more specifically in ‘cinquain'. Cinquain apparently is five line poetry with a rhyming pattern of 'ababb'!

I don’t know which is more disturbing, a judge that writes in code or verse?
