I know Marten. Good guy personally, though I obviously disagree with his decisions in many cases.
As for the case, it will be interesting to see where this ends up.
Nice do hear than the judge is a personally decent chap. I know quite a few good, decent and upstanding liberals also. Being a lib doesn’t mean you have to be a Castro or Lenin. We just need to start doing a better job in November, 2012 electing a president and Congress who will appoint judges having a stronger devotion to conservative principles.
