Dear blog readers, this decison came when I was out of town and just barely had an Internet connection. I am back home now.
I see number of folks have said they will contact the judge and thank him. I appreciate the sentiment. However, it must be understood that under the law, any comments, arguments, or evidence can only be submitted by the parties to the lawsuit. This allows other parties to the lawsuit to contest any submissions. Any letters to a judge about a case from nonparties are inappropriate.
