CA6: f-bomb dropped
The usual suspects point us to Rendon v.
, by the Sixth Circuit which enforces an administrative fine against
someone that swore at a security screener over vagueness, over-breadth and first
amendment challenges to
49 C.F.R. § 1540.109
. This opinion, by far, is the absolute worst
opinion of the year. I mean, it is really really bad. I don’t think
mere words can explain how bad it is. Rendon was pro se.

Update: Mike
Cernovich offers
to draft all the pleading for anyone admitted in the Sixth
who is willing to do oral argument while representing the petitioner before an
en banc court. There has got to be one of you that can take it. If
not, pass it on.
