That's telling them

Via How Appealing, this AP story ("State Justices Decline Fed. Court's Questions in Death Penalty Case," 12/4) reports that the Tennessee Supreme Court has refused to answer question about state law sent to it by a federal court in a death penalty case. I support the state court can let the federal court have a first crack at the state law issue, then decide in the next case whether the federals guessed right.
