Smith v. Patrick (9th Cir. - Dec. 4, 2007)

"I'm sorry, Supreme Court. I understand that you GVR'd this case. But, with all due respect, your latest opinion bears not in the slightest upon our holding. So we reiterate it."

Judges Pregerson, Canby, and Edward Reed (from Nevada) seven-page per curiam opinion goes on a little longer. But basically, that's all it says.
