I'm feeling a bit sappy this morning.
I'm proud of the 3d DCA for ruling correctly and quite reasonably yesterday.
In a well-written decision, the boys in the bunker have dramatically improved the lives of Florida children and future parents for generations to come -- in innumerable, unknowable ways.
Appellate guru Barbara Green put it best, as she often does, in the Herald this morning (article apparently not online):
"It's really judges doing what judges are supposed to do. They're not ruling from any agenda."And what a great way for Judge Cope to end a superlative judicial career!
But what is the mystery over whether or not the opinion will be appealed?
