February 13: alright I'm moving this off the front page. there have been no opinions issued in about a month so maybe they are on hiatus or something.
January 22, 2010: I expect the ruling on the Stevens case might come down by next week. I personally want to thank Bob Stevens for seeing this thing through. You know a lot of people when they have trouble think 'I don't have a lot of money and should just take a deal'. Looking at the court records I see that Bob pushed through a good part of his fight with nothing but a public defender! keep that in mind people, your lawyer must follow what you say and if you take a deal, even illegal laws will stand.
Win or lose (and my opinion is he'll 'win' and the Supreme Court will let the appeals court ruling striking down the law stand) at least he didn't just lay down, like others have when they had the chance to make a difference and took the easy way out.
