This Associated Press story in the Clarion-Ledger is a reminder that the Leonard v. Nationwide case goes on at the appeals level, and that oral argument is scheduled for Aug. 6. I haven’t read the appellate briefs in the case yet, but sometime in the next month I will, and I will report back to you on what I think. If you need a reprise of the Leonard case from last year, I have written many posts on the case, and this link is your huckleberry, as is this one, and this one, and this one, and this one. If you are looking for a pdf of the decision, the second-to-last link is your huckleberry. And to the person who asked me recently if I have declared a moratorium on the use of the phrase "this is your huckleberry" because it hasn’t been used lately on this blog, I’d say you have your answer.
UPDATE: I of course should have anticipated that casual and some regular readers have no idea what this huckleberry talk means: here’s an explanation, coincidentally from a prior post on the Leonard case.
