NPR: Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Challenging Stem-Cell Research Funding
It wasn't exactly that Lamberth changed his mind on the subject from last year, when he opined that the plaintiffs in the case — the two adult stem-cell scientists — were likely to prevail. Rather, the judge wrote in a 38-page decision, he was bound by the reasoning of the U.S. Court of Appeals, which, in overturning his injunction in April, made him "a grudging partner in a bout of 'linguistic jujitsu.' Such is life for an antepenultimate court" (Rovner, 7/27).
