Comments on proposed FRAP 32.1 regarding unpublished opinions

Denise Howell has this post regarding a new website called Secret Justice, which advocates the proposed new FRAP 32.1 regarding unpublished opinions. Posted on the website are at least some of the comments received on the proposal, including mine and that of Roy Jessee from Norton.

Reading through the list, I see that Fred Bartlit and Stephen Yagman, a couple of real lawyers if ever there were, have offered comments and both take the opposite view from mine. Reading over their comments and others, I guess I have a happy and simple life as a lawyer, never worrying much about anything but the law of Virginia and the Fourth Circuit, and always hoping to find the golden case.
