Great dissent from Judge Sykes. I'm kind of mixed on this one... on the one hand, I don't think the Seventh Circuit majority had a good, logical legal basis for their decision. On the other, Skoien wouldn't be my choice for the guy to challenge the domestic violence prohibition - so seeing him shot down (and in a decision with poor analysis and no real attempt made to apply scrutiny no less) makes me think the door is still open for some better appellant to bring a case later.

It will be interesting to see if Skoien appeals to SCOTUS and whether he gets cert.
