Moore/Shepard v Madigan orals are now available

Orals for the court cases were this morning and by all accounts, the state took a beating. 

Hear it and decide for yourself here:

You'll need to input "12" under the year and "1269" in the other box, this brings up a new page with the link to the audio file.

Next step

Well, now that the Spring session is over in the IL legislature and we still haven't had our RTC recognized, it's time for the next step.

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments tomorrow (June 8) on both the Shepard and Moore cases. This is the same court that gave us Ezell so there is some hope. I encourage everyone to stay tuned to IllinoisCarry tomorrow, some of the members will be present for the arguments and will (hopefully) inform us of their impressions afterwards. No electronic equipment is allowed in the court so we'll have to wait until they finish.
