Brayton v. Pawlenty

The Cliff Notes version of the full opinion:

Chief Justice Eric Magnuson: Pawlenty’s unallotments for a whole biennium even before it started is an unlawful use of the statute, unintended by the Legislature when it was adopted.

Concurring Justice Page: And the statute is probably unconstitutional, too.

Dissenting Justice Gildea: You’re both wrong.
