What Professor Means said is, IMO, simply dumb.

But I'll try to put more thought into it than he apparently did before I respond.

I'm going to write something about this dreadful case. However, I will note that the only legal thought that has even addressed this case in any substantial fashion already occurred, on this site.

He should have taken that job at Amazon when he had the chance (and the stock is up 100% this year). The article didn't say what happens next.... Is there a trial?
