Yes, Indiana's Supreme Court Justice is at it again; this time, he's decided your right to lease out your own house for a few days does not exist, not if some zoning ordnance says it doesn't. Hoping to earn a bit against your upside-down home loan during tourist season? Better check local law first!
This is the same man who led the trampling of both Indiana law and centuries of common law in ruling you had no right to resist police entering your home, even if their entry was illegal.
Justice Steven David is up for a retention vote in 2012. It's time we threw this bum out.
And in the meantime? At my house, come 5 November when we make up a little effigy, he's the Guy. Oh, yes, the very Guy indeed. I don't mind borrowing the customs of others for a good cause. But we can't have much of a bonfire, just our little screened firepit -- there's a local ordnance about that, too.
