Outside comments on this case:



I have discussed this case with an SDA attorney friend of mine who regularly litigates.   He shares my opinion that this case may not be the proper case to litigate.   He thinks that it could result in an adverse decision.  If this were to happen, it would set Sabbath keepers back into a worse position than the one in which they now have.
