Ind. Decisions - "Judge Tinder finds his own opinion persusasive"

The ILB has received this note from a reader, re yesterday's 7th Circuit opinion by Judge Tinder in the case of Jordan v. Binns (3rd opinion):

A light-hearted observation about the 7th Circuit’s decision in Jordan v. Binns (an opinion that only an evidence professor would find interesting), authored by our own Judge John Tinder. At pages 8-9, he discusses the only authority cited for a particular point, a district court decision called In re Greenwood Air Crash. He acknowledges that the district court decision is not binding, “but our analysis of the issue leads us to the same conclusion ...”.

Not too surprising, as the district judge who wrote that decision was none other than -- Judge Tinder!
