The Texas Supreme Court channels Ferris Bueller

This post by Eugene Volokh of the Volokh Conspiracy, a blog that focuses on Constitutional issues, quotes significantly from an opinion by the Texas Supreme Court that tries to make sense of who is or isn’t a member of the media. It’s important to those of us who write because there are legal protections from litigation for the media that don’t apply to the public at large. In the process Justice Don Willett’s dissent invokes Ferris Bueller but then gets into the the serious business of who is and who isn’t “media”. It’s a tad esoteric but worthy of a read.
