Lori Drew Opinion:

Orin is too modest to mention it, but Judge Wu's opinion in the Lori Drew case cites Orin's article on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, several times.

Curt Fischer:
Is it extra embarrassing or anything to the prosecution, when the judge repeatedly cites the defense lawyer's scholarly works in support of his ruling?

Orin is modest? :-)

I think Orin owes you a beer!

And as a further note, OK said he had not seen press coverage of the ruling. But here in St. Louis where the case occurred, the reversal was reported and the press had a quote from the unhappy teenage victim's father.

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.
