U.S. Fidelity & Guarantee Co. v. Lee Investments (9th Cir. - April 18, 2011)

Want to see an appellant get absolutely crushed in an opinion?  Here you go.

Judge Thomas is relentless.  There must be twenty or so different arguments that the defendant makes that get rejected -- many summarily -- by the Ninth Circuit.

I sort of feel bad for them.  Except that Judge Thomas is right.
