FOOTNOTE ONE: THIS DECISION DOES

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:22 pm

FOOTNOTE ONE: THIS DECISION DOES NOT APPLY TO MY TELEPHONE NUMBER: The telephone number of U.S. District Judge Edward Nottingham, the judge who ruled the Do-Not-Call list unconstitutional, is . . . on the Do-Not-Call list.

Maybe Nottingham anticipated that irate citizens with a sense of irony would be deluging him with phone calls after the issuance of his decision. This actually happened after Jay Leno made the following quip on his T.V. show: “The judge says the telemarketers can call you whenever they want. You know what we should do? Let’s all call this judge tonight at home during dinner.”

(Via SoCalLawBlog.)

TEASE: I have read Judge Nottingham’s decision, and will explain in the next day or two why I disagree with it.

UPDATE: Howard Bashman says that this shows that the judge was applying the law regardless of his personal interest. Interesting take.
