A Man And His Passion

Steve. Steve. Steve. What in the good name of Christ is this?

Continuing on the theme of federal programs and section 1983 claims

In Caswell v. City of Detroit Housing Commission, the Sixth Circuit held that the plaintiff has no section 1983 claim based on the alleged denial of the benefits of the Voucher Program created by regulations implementing Section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937. In reaching its conclusion, the Court applied the FERPA case, Gonzaga University v. Doe, 536 U.S. 273 (2002), argued by John Roberts, that was cited in today's article on Medicaid in the NY Times, discussed below.

Now, when I was young and wanted to impress the chicks, I'd quote muzzle velocities to them of 30-06 caliber bullets with various grain weights from 125 to 210, the relative knock-down power of each and the expected drop in trajectory at 200 yards when using any one of them.

It worked every time.

Mr. Minor seems to have a different approach (or he has targeted a different class of chicks; hard to tell).

If anyone out there can decipher what it is that my favorite blogging attorney has written, please let me know. It looks good though, doesn't it? When I find myself running afoul of FERPA, I'm going to have Steve argue my case.

You can tell, as you read his weblog, that Steve really enjoys this stuff, although the reason for it is completely mystifying.
