On the day that SCOTUS comes back with their ruling (good or bad aside for now), what is the procedures for postings that day, is there going to be a sticky or just a post with threads merging. Just wondering as I bet things are going to go crazy.

interested in this as well. It just might be worth it to have a forum spash screen with the verdict... or a sticky at the top of legal. hope you guys have good load balancing :)

Surely there will be a sticky.

Anyone who tries to make a thread announcing the verdict, rather than search for a preexisting thread on the matter, will strike me as fairly silly.

Maybe the moderators could have alternative versions of the SCOTUS decision hidden in advance and instantly reveal the correct one the instant there's an announcement.

For instance "Dewey Wins!" ....

No, sorry, that's one I had left over from November 3, 1948. I really must clean up this hard disk some day. ...

Okay, here are the examples I meant to post:


SCOTUS rules for DC. Justices flee Washington.
SCOTUS rules for Heller. Justices flee Washington.
SCOTUS remands back to appeals court. Justices flee Washington.
SCOTUS postpones decision. Justices flee Washington.
Obama wins! Justice flees Washington.

I'm imagining that Mal H will be taking 3 Excedrin, and coming up with a lot of clever closing lines.

Perhaps we'll take the whole site down and just post the decision for a week (for the party or the wake, depending).

That's not a bad idea. I can totally see how the site would be flooded with posts on the same topic.

Understanding is that the ruling will come back on a Monday, tomorrow might be uh, heavy if that is the day.
