I can relate to exam week, NoahGrey! I still have strange nightmares about exams!

I doubt that anyone was defending cruelty to animals, Chris. The Court looks at the law with a broader eye, trying to determine unintended consequences to the way it's written. It wasn't the subject matter, but the wording that came into question.

If it spurs the crafting of a tighter, more restrictive and effective law, the ruling will be a good thing. Often, when the Court overturns something, new laws spring up that handle the problem better. Let's hope this turns out to be another case like that
