“It was tried and it’s the law.”

This is why I love the law:  the NCAA lost the O’Bannon case in front of U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken and has appealed her decision to the Supreme Court, but meanwhile is invoking O’Bannon as a shield against Jeffrey Kessler in his antitrust suit… and finding that Judge Wilken is sympathetic to its defense.

What a country, eh?

    “Your honor, I object!”

    “On what grounds?”

    “My client is guilty and I have no defense!”

    It reminds me of a certain Solicitor General arguing that a certain piece of legislation was both a tax and not a tax in the same case before the Supreme Court.

  3. Prof Leavell would invoke estoppel using a banana metaphor.
