Courts - Linking to 7th Circuit opinions can be tricky

The ILB has been tricked up by this. You cannot just link to 7th Circuit opinions, like you can to those of any other court. If you do the link will expire in a few hours. You have to take care to create a "permanent" link. All this was explained by Howard Bashman in a How Appealing entry yesterday. A quote:

[J]ust as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit is fortunate to have on its court some of the best writers and best legal minds in the entire federal judiciary, the Seventh Circuit is also the only federal appellate court that makes it nearly impossible to link to its own rulings.
My opinion: The 7th Circuit needs a good technical person.
