U.S. v. Horvath (9th Cir. - July 10, 2007)

I like how Judge Rymer begins her dissent in this case, which begins: "This is a tough issue. Given that the majority sees the statute differently from the way I do, I take comfort in its effort to craft a narrow rule." That's an accurate, collegial, and fair opening gambit. Not every disagreement has to be personal.
