Joe McFaul doesn't post often on his Law, Evolution, Science, and Junk Science blog, but when he does, you can be sure it's worth reading.

Joe's an attorney who's been admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Court of Military Appeals, U.S. Claims Court, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, various U.S. District Courts and all Courts in California. He's also served as a judge pro tem and court appointed arbitrator. He graduted magna cum laude from Seattle University in 1983 and was Lead Articles Editor for Law Review.

So he speaks with some authority on legal matters. As a matter of fact, he once gave RSR some good (free) advice on how to handle Litigious Larry Caldwell.

Joe's latest post takes up the Discovery Institute's ludicrous charge that Judge Jones plagiarized his ruling from the ACLU's Finding of Fact and Conclusion of Law.

The whole thing is worth reading, but here's one of the better lines to tide you over until follow the link to his blog:
After trial there is as “winner” and a “loser,” as Intelligent Design has found out. About 50% of all parties in trials come out as “losers.” Losers don’t like being losers. They moan, they blame the judges or their own lawyers. It never crosses their minds that the law and facts were against them. At Dover, there is no question that ID was the “loser.”

Okay, what're you waiting for? Get on over to Law, Evolution, Science, and Junk Science.
