Unpublished opinions

In conjunction with my earlier post mentioning my disdain for the use of unpublished opinions, comes an article from the ABA Journal's E-report noting that the United States Supreme Court has passed a rule change to allow citation to unpublished opinions in all circuits after January 1, 2007. It remains to be seen how much weight the various circuits will give to these opinions, which have been described as "junk law."
