    The Helmke (Brady Center) quotes are interesting, to say the least.

    I've read a bunch of these types of articles. Fenty has a duty to defend the laws of DC, not stategize nationally. His fiducial duty is to appeal.

    File a petition for certiorari, which is a brief telling the Court what the case is about and why it is important for the Court to hear the case.
