On Monday the Louisiana funeral industry filed Notice of Appeal of Federal Judge Stanwood R. Duval's ruling that an Abbey of Benedictine monks may disregard a Louisiana regulatory scheme designed to protect the industry and resume selling modestly-priced, handcrafted caskets without risking heavy fines or imprisonment. Judge Duval's stunning display of common sense was last reported herein July.
The Fifth Circuit might have a bit of fun with this one. Heck, the U.S. Supreme Court might even grant cert on it just to hear the oral arguments about plus-size cadavers and leaking products of decomposition that Judge Duval had to sit through. I hope they manage to fast-track the appeal. This is getting good.
