Subject: SLS: Inslaw case is over [sic] (fwd)

And now, DOJ will be free to exploit this
very sophisticated software (and all expensive
modifications they have made to it since
stealing it from Inslaw Inc.), to spy on 
the financial affairs of DOJ's favorite
targets:  opponents of the New World Order.

My hypothesis about DOJ's property conversion 
racket just got a whole lot stronger, didn't it?
Elizabeth Broderick and LeRoy Schweitzer, are
you listening to this?

The federal judge who made this ruling is a 
taxpayer, so the decision is null and void
anyway, until her W-4 is rescinded.  See
Evans v. Gore for authority.
