Good grief

A federal judge denies attorney fees to McDonald (of McDonald v Chicago), based on the astonishing argument that McDonald is somehow not the prevailing party.

The judge’s argument, as best I understand it, goes like this: the case wasn’t completely over when McDonald won at the Supreme Court, and the case became moot when Chicago changed the law in response to losing at the Supreme Court, so no one actually prevailed. Sheesh.
