M.B. Financial Group v. USPS (9th Cir. - Sept. 25, 2008)

Want to know when (if ever) you can sue the United States Postal Service? Want to read a good statutory interpretation case? Want to see how a dissent might practically employ law and economics to advance a particular result?

If the answer to any of these three questions is "Yes," here's your assigned reading for the day.

Otherwise: Never mind.

P.S. - Judge Schroeder: Don't you mean "principal" in the sentence (at the top of page 13770) that currently reads: "Hence, negligent driving of postal trucks was a principle activity for which Congress wanted to create
liability when the FTCA waived sovereign immunity."?
