LCJ Judge on the soft law inherent in the Magna Carta as applied

The great triumph of William Marshall: "one of the most striking features of the Charter is that it provides no remedy for any individual affected by breach of any provision. In short, to the extent that it provided any rights at all, the individual whose rights were effected, was not able to do anything about it. If the King failed to comply with the agreement, the rebel barons were dispensed from their obligation of fealty. Yet in some strange way this provided one of its longer term strengths."
