A couple of interesting decisions via How Appealing...

Judge Posner writes a decision affirming a lower court ruling that all Illinois residents do not have a right to absentee voting.

This decision is one of the more amusing to read. The judges clearly seem upset that this appeal was brought at all since to read the decision it looks as though the appeal had no merit or justification in law at all. To give you an example, one of the arguments for appeal was that had the plaintiff in the case used a microsoft patch update then the defendent would not have been able to illegally access their website. The judges point out that this is the equivalent of a thief using the defense that he would not have been able to break into the house if they had a better lock.

Here is a brief AP story about a calf that lead police on a 30 minute chase through 3 towns.
