Oh yes, something quite interesting. Something that would explain the thoroughness of the decision, and something that might give an ever-so-tiny ray of hope to those that want this decision overturned.
But since 2by4 seems to think I'm not qualified to give my opinion, I think I'll keep my research to myself.
It's basic case research, so I'm sure that someone else (such as 2by4 or leosghost) will come up with it. It just requires a few searches and some simple critical thinking about how appeals work.
