From Wallace v. Diversified Consultants, Inc. (6th Cir. Mar. 26, 2014):
The law “doth reject all fractions and divisions of a day,” and so for the most part excludes the day of an event when measuring time from that event. Clayton’s Case, 5 Co. Rep. 1a, 1b (K.B. 1585).
I like it. Thanks to Howard Bashman (How Appealing) for the pointer.
