Sue Them? Issue a Writ?

How Appealing reports:

"Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference Brings Federal Bench, Bar to Honolulu": The Public Information Office of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued this news release today. One of the scheduled presentations is titled -- I kid you not -- "Killer Asteroids and What We Can Do About Them."

OK, judges are just as entitled as anyone else to have some general interest presentations to add variety to their conferences, and I'm told Hawaii is known for its astronomers. Still, it's at first glance a funny juxtaposition.
