The court canít ignore this one because itís mentioned in the suit. They will have to make some decision about the law the way itís written and if one of the defining (for the Commission) code sections is found unconstitutional, the rest of the code sections will get flushed along with it.

There was a really neat example of this in the recent teacher/student sex case when the defense presented a hypothetical situation where application of the law the way it is written would result in an absurd outcome. When the DA countered that the law wasnít intended to be used that way, the Justice flatly stated, ďBut, thatís not what it says.Ē It was great.

BTW, do you know if anything noteworthy happens at a ďcivil status conferenceĒ?

Evidently I donít get sued enough to know such things. Is this something I (we?) should attend to stay accurately informed on the progression of this case or is it just some procedural thing to pick dates? Itís scheduled for this Tuesday afternoon.

Also, drinking liquids can produce hefty fines and much worse, provided you consume enough of the proper liquid. At least thatís what Jim told meÖ
