McDermott v. Ampersand Publishing (9th Cir. - Jan. 26, 2010)

I'll have more of substance to say about this case shortly. Which involves a facially narrow labor law issue but which nonetheless is a fairly interesting one (and one which I think will get some play).

But let me ignore the doctrine for a second and simiply give you the pracical bottom line for now:

Don't worry about reading this opinion, which came out this morning. Because it's going to get taken en banc. And reversed.

That's my prediction. If you'd like, read it and see if you agree.
