Word: Obstreperous

I was reading Justice Scalia’s Timbers case re: adequate protection and relief from stay.  In the opinion, Justice Scalia strongly disagreed with the Bank’s continual misinterpretation of 362(d)(2).  He writes…..

“[The Bank] offers no reason why Congress would want to provide relief for such an obstreperous and thoroughly unharmed creditor.” 

Obstreperous means noisy and difficult to control.

With one word, he calls the Bank a tantrum-throwing four year old.  I’ll be sure to use this word in my future oppositions.
