A Case of Bad Law But Good Decision?

I, for one, would have favored letting the suit proceed, contrary to the majority of the federal judges in this case. They do know best on which side their bread is buttered unlike others, who have no clue, or don't care, where the dough comes from.

Oh, you didn't know? It grows on trees. By this standard we will soon have many more of the environmentally conscious on the benches but hopefully not in the sense of bench warmers.

Opinion (7-2; Jan. 8) in John R. Sand & Gravel v. United States (06-1164) is now available here. HT SCOTUSBLOG.
