People v. Monjaras (Cal. Ct. App. - July 21, 2008)

It's as good a reason as any -- or at least good enough -- to publish an opinion merely to put to rest meritless arguments that nonetheless seem to be repeatedly raised in the Court of Appeal

Or, as Justice Scotland puts it so artfully here: "Our point in publishing this opinion is to say in no uncertain terms that a moribund claim like that raised by defendant has breathed its last breath."

To which I respond as follows: (1) Hear, hear. And yet (2) Wanna bet?
