Above all, Rosen says he's drawn a lesson from how his initial essay was treated by people of both ideological stripes. He won't be blogging any more. He wants to spend more time with the material before hitting "send."
He basically did everything short of calling Sotomayor an "uppity bitch." Scalia is also an arrogant asshole, but not even left-wingers like myself would say that this personal defect would disqualify him from the SC.

It was a strict construction of the law. It was 3-0 panel affirmation of the trial court's decision. This was a straight application of 2d Cir. precedent- they were following their precedent
But, of course, pace your insightful analysis, I am sure that SCOTUS will remand this case because the incorrect standard for summary judgment was applied. I mean, really, that was what Cabranes was all up in arms about, right? That's cool, because I'd love me some hot civpro action.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.
We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.
And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
