Reading the Tea Leaves

As we've noted in the past, and the hearing in the Cobb County appeal makes us uncomfortably aware, predictions about the ultimate outcome of a case are risky. That being said, we think we can get a fairly clear picture of how the leading participants -- both for the plaintiffs and the defense -- in the Dover case see their chances. On the one hand,
"We feel very good about the case we presented," said Eric Rothschild, the plaintiffs' lead attorney.

While on the other,

"There's not much that we can do," said Richard Thompson of the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Thomas More Law Center. "It's out of our hands."
The glum response from Thompson says it all. Judge John E. Jones III is widely expected to hand down his ruling tomorrow.
