    “The district court’s ruling errs in so many respects that it is hard to know where to begin,” the appeals court held.

    Ouch...

    Ouch is right! The district judge was totally bitch-slapped, and deservedly so.

    Interesting that the District Courts still did not comply with the actual Appeals Court order....as the case was never re-assigned and the orders were simply signed in a very generic manner, and NOT by a specific District Judge....The opinion, however, was issued “per curiam,” meaning, “by the court” — as in, it was not signed by any of the judges in particular.
