Claiborne I appluade the news--but suggest no one touch the champagne yet. A state county judge is one of the most "inferior" courts in the land, and his ruling is precendent probably only in his county--most states would not require it to be honored anywhere else. Other states would not accept it as binding precedent at all.

So unless there are no appeals, and the case is allowed to remain unchallenged, and Florida *requires* it to be held as binding precendent in other counties...it doesn't mean anything more than "OK, you can anchor at Marcos Island this way."

Still, every small victory against the bastards counts!
