fun in the Court of Appeals
My last 11th Circuit argument was on the same day as, with the same panel as, the Alabama Ten Commandments case.
And my luck holds: I just found out that my next 11th Circuit argument, in September, will be on the same day as (and presumably with the same panel as) the Alabama vibrator law case! That should be a great argument to see. Here, for vibrator law afficionados, is the Circuit's decision the first time around. The District Court has once again held the law unconstitutional, and Attorney General Pryor has appealed again. It will be, among other things, an interesting test of the impact of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Lawrence v. Texas.
