Estate of Barton v. ADT Security Svcs. Pension Plan (9th Cir. - April 21, 2016)

Good for you, Judges Owens (who writes today's opinion) and Kozinski.  Good for you.

This is the type of opinion that Judge Ikuta -- who claims that her colleagues have gone "off the rails" -- hates.  By contrast, it's the type of equitable, common sense, and undeniably fair opinion that people like me love.

Competing styles, to be sure.

But I think it's awesome.  Exactly right.  The type of judges I like to see on the bench.

Well done.
