Good morning readers! Glad to be back on schedule this week thanks in small part to my dilligence and in much larger part to the fact that there were only two published civil opinions last week in the Courts of Appeals. Thanks for the break Judges!
I’ve been trying to think of some tie-in for thanking the Judges and this week’s song. But I’ve got nothing. So here it is, unexplained and unlinked, the song of the week: If I Had a Boat by Lyle Lovett.
I really wanted the song of the week to be Fat Babies by Lyle Lovett, but I couldn’t find a good link/video for that one. It was all just videos of actual real-life fat babies totally unrelated to the song. And if you want to see that, well, perhaps you can get in touch with my parents for some old VHS tapes.
Anyway, here’s the fuel for your Monday fire — last week’s Court of Appeals opinions:
Schorno v. Kannada (Division 2, May 1, 2012) — on the existance of a civil cause of action for childhood sexual abuse, along with some extensive dicta on deciding motions for summary judgment in cases of “inextricably intertwined” claims and counterclaims.
State of Washington v. City of Spokane Valley (Division 3, May 3, 2012) — on the statutory exemption from permit requirements for private noncommercial docks.
