All Tied Up


It appears that Sam and I are all tied up at 8-4 on the prediction game, since he correctly predicted Eldred and I did not (the Court affirmed today--Congress can extend copyrights forever), and becasue we both correctly predicted Barnhart v. Peabody Coal (the Court reversed--but I can't be as pithy. The Secretary of Social Security can make initial assignmnents of retirees to existing operators to pay their benefits beyond the statutory deadline).
