Ken breaks bad, equates Virginia jurists with Rose Bird, HOWT responds

In this post, obviously locked in the throes of around-the-clock brief-writing, Ken Lammers declares that the Virginia courts are not as conservative as you might expect, although his examples are not especially compelling. I mean, the liberal courts are the ones running wild with the state constitutions these days, in Massachusetts and elsewhere.

HOWT had this response, including some reference to Sutherland on Statutory Construction (which reminds me of Statutory Construction Zone, still updated every now and then).
