    I remember the Kavanaugh ruling and I was surprised that other judges hadn't mentioned it as well. Admittedly, I had never heard of the Anti-Injunction Act before, but it never made sense that any of the plaintiffs actually had standing to sue since the penalty provision for the IM wouldn't take effect until 2015. In other words, I did not know why, but I thought none of the plaintiffs actually had standing to sue yet.

      not included in HCF 1.0, including - if one may continue the software analogy - a complete re-design and conversion of the database which precludes a simple roll-back if it's found to be unworkable.

      A lot of people will have incurred a lot of expense to adapt to the new version and it just makes sense to get behind us the possibility that a recall will happen, no?

      I don't say that this consideration MUST be acknowledged by the SC but it would be good if they can find a way to make their decisive contribution earlier rather than later.
