The B’Ham News reports

    Yeah — wasting resources is what legislators are supposed to do!

    You mean they’re not going to ask the court to reconsider their unanimous decision? “I know all 9 of you guys all said I was wrong based on our arguments. But could you maybe reconsider it until 5 of you change your minds?”

    I hear that Mark Monteil may revive this issue using a different line of legal argument from the one Riley/King used.
