We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)

The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

This seems like a good topic for the forum,
and I suspect others may benefit from the conversation.
The Attorney General Opinion, 2008 has some statements that have been cited in cases, most notably, Chan v. Seattle.
