Clarice Feldman provides a clear analysis of the logical errors rampant in Judge Reggie Walton's opinion rejecting the TeamLibby Motion to Dismiss. I'm just guessing but I don't think that Clarice intends to go back into practice in DC any time soon.
From a non-lawyer standpoint, I found Judge Walton's opinion understandable and without the obvious political slant that stained Judge Tatel's opinion in the Miller case. I thought his holding Morrison as being definitive and overriding Edmond to be ludicrous, although he is careful to state that no 'bright line' exists concerning SCOTUS debutante with regard to the superior versus inferior officer argument.
I hope that interlocutory appeal is allowable and that this opinion is reviewed prior to Fitz's Folly proceeding. This case (particularly Fitz's behavior as a prosecutor) is not strengthening my opinion of our justice system.
