    Not sure that irony is the correct word, especially given the fact that it was the 9th Circuit who brought Katie John into the case. We will see what happens tomorrow, but I've heard Sturgeons lawyers crafted their case to try and keep the Katie John decision whole and straighten up the mess the 9th has made.

    I would prefer to have watched the proceedings, but the transcripts sure read like Mr. Kneedler stammered and stuttered for the majority of his time. Oral arguments are but a very small part of the overall picture, but they definitely went in the favor of Sturgeon.

    I doubt SCOTUS pushes anything on the Katie John decision front, it was clear that Sturgeon and the State of Alaska didn't want any part of wrapping Katie John and this decision into the same argument.

    It won't go back to the 9th, they've made enough of a mess of this case. I see an overwhelming decision for Sturgeon and Alaska.

    There's nothing quite so sad as a troll begging to be fed.

    The bell rang and the hungry came to feed, how long did it take you iof..all of 18 minutes, you must be hungry. Don't be so hard on yourself, the hunger for knowledge is deep, and that is good.
