Take that, you Marylanders

As reported here by Reuters, here by the AP, here by the Maryland Gazette newspapers, and here by the Washington Post, the Supreme Court has ruled by a 7-2 vote in Virginia v. Maryland for Virginia is the winner and Maryland is the loser in a dispute over the boundary along the Potomac River. (What else do you need to know about a case like that? Unfortunately, in the last Virginia v. Maryland matchup, Maryland won by a wider margin, 27-17.)

This continues the serious roll of cases in which Virginia, AG Kilgore, and his solicitor general, Mr. Hurd, have won before the United States Supreme Court, going back to last year with the cross-burning and trespassing cases.
