Judge Lifland's Opinion On Net Equity.

Having spent time assessing Judge Lifland's opinion of March 1st, I shall set forth some impressions of it. I shall not deal with the entire opinion, especially since so much of it is taken from the briefs of the Trustee and SIPC. Such points have thus been discussed here before. For the most part. I shall focus on points of especial import or importance (there can be a difference), on points I think should be given far more emphasis in our side's appellate briefs than was given them in our briefs before Lifland, and on the question of whether it would be wiser to have taken an ordinary appeal to the District Court rather than have sought an appeal directly to the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, as the trustee and several of the victims' lawyers have now done at the suggestion of Judge Lifland. (One knows that, because so many people are hurting badly, it seems to have always been assumed that our side will seek an immediate appeal to the Second Circuit. But the wisdom of that automatically assumed course is subject to debate; one thinks it at least possible that, for reasons I shall discuss, it might be better for our side if an appeal went first to the District Court.)
