The Attorney General said in a press release, "I am appealing the court's decision because it is not supported by the law, and it undermines important protections that our courts provide to defendants. This flawed ruling requires appellate review."  Undermines important protections?  Well, certainly "not supported by the law," "flawed," and "requires appellate review" are correct.  With apologies to Meatloaf, three out of four ain't bad.
