My hat is off to Robert Levy, scholar, businessman, lawyer, and Cato board member, who conceived [note correction below], orchestrated, and financed the case, and to Alan Gura, who argued the case so excellently before the court, and to Clark Neily, who managed so many details of the case, contributed his legal insights and sharp intellect, and, like Alan, gave it all he had. Those three guys are truly awesome. I’m glad they’re on the side of freedom. We’d be in bad shape if we lost their talents, and doomed if such people of quality were on the other side.
UPDATE: I’d just like to note that I erred when I wrote that Bob Levy conceived the case, as the idea was first suggested by Clark Neily and Steve Simpson, who proposed the idea to Bob, who then signed on.
