Yes. Even where there is disagreement on what the ruling should be, you at least know where the line is...what actions you might take that would comply with the ruling, and which would not.

Sandra Day O’Connor was legendary for the unnecessary vagueness, blurry lines, and double talk in her rulings. Some of the current judges follow suit.

That would be because many of O'Connor's opinions weren't based on the law, but upon the fuzzy "fairness doctrine" that mommies impose to resolve disputes between two squabbling children.
