7th Circuit Court Defines a Ho vs. Hoe Courtesy of Ludacris

I wish I could take credit for finding this hilarious text after perusing the latest decisions handed down by the 7th circuit court, but I actually don't read every case on file. I think it's a sign that Ludacris really has made it now that he has been made a subject matter expert for the courts. No matter though, the following text really appears as a footnote in a trial's transcript from May 4th:

Footnote one of the Seventh Circuit's opinion today in USA v. Murphy states:
The trial transcript quotes Ms. Hayden as saying Murphy called her a snitch bitch "hoe." A "hoe," of course, is a tool used for weeding and gardening. We think the court reporter, unfamiliar with rap music (perhaps thankfully so), misunderstood Hayden's response. We have taken the liberty of changing "hoe" to "ho," a staple of rap music vernacular as, for example, when Ludacris raps "You doin' ho activities with ho tendencies."

Don't believe it's legit? Look at page 2 of this PDF transcript.
