In federal court today, Judge William Sessions expressed a healthy dose of skepticism for the state's interpretation of independent gubernatorial candidate Anthony Pollina's campaign finance situation.

Sessions tends to keep his court sessions light. He did that Wednesday when he ended the hearing by asking Attorney General Bill Sorrell how things had gone with the state's campaign finance arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court.
"Did you win that case, Mr. Sorrell?"
"Are you talking literally or figuratively?" Sorrell answered from the back of the courtroom.
He lost it, literally, of course. Figuratively? Well, I guess he got his day in the sun.
Sessions played a role in that law too. He upheld most of it before the higher court decided otherwise.
