Declaration Case in Court Again

In the matter of the Wiscasset Declaration of Independence: after a lower court in Virginia ruled against its position back in February 2008, word was that the state of Maine would be appealing the decision (which held that the Declaration rightly belonged to its current owner). There's an update on the case today in the Richmond Times-Dispatch: arguments in the appeal will be heard by the Supreme Court of Virginia on Tuesday.

It sounds to me like Maine's going to be making much the same argument they made before the trial judge last year, so we'll see if the higher court is more convinced. Somehow I suspect not.
