Update: Van Kirk v. State

7 10 2011

The decision didn’t come out this week.  The Arkansas Supreme Court typically does an outstanding job of having a decision published two weeks from submission.  Thursday morning I was on pins and needles awaiting word until I realized the Court didn’t issue a decision in the case.  The Court instead issued an opinion in last week’s civil case.  So if they issue a decision in Van Kirk next week they can still keep their two week average for decisions intact.  Now I just speculate on what it means that they are taking longer.  My guess is that there is a dissent or concurring opinion being circulated.  At least that will make the issue more interesting if there is a split.  It’s always enjoyable to read a passionate dissent in which the dissenter picks apart the fallacies in the majority’s opinion.  Now I’m even more excited about the opinion because even if I have lost I may have convinced one of the seven justices.  We shall see…for all I know it could be an uneventful 7-0 decision.
