Overjoyed at the 5thCurcuit decision this October. Thanks to all parties for briefs. Special acknowledgements are due to the Institute for Justice, whose strategic actions serve all consumers rights. I’m trying to hang this around Gov. Jindal’s neck, if the state board chooses to appeal to US Supreme. It’s his board, it’s his legislature, which, twice, declined to pass out of committee, a bill to allow a Benedictine order of monks to build and sell caskets. How dare he defend Louisiana’s right to protect a favored monopoly from market force COMPETITION ; the fix is already in, that is, a adaptable price list. (How can a State which requires all it’s citizens to line up, wallets open, to it’s licensee allow that licensee to charge different prices if you bring your own box, or disregard all embalming considerations if you express a religious preference , yet routinely denying access to that same service in regions of the state where orthodox demands are infrequent ?) What a Prince of Open Markets or the Freedom to OPT OUT!
