Legal Eagle on the Malaysian "solution" decision
This is a more detailed and accurate analysis than my very quick hot-off-the-presses one. So rely on it instead. I endorse many of its reflections. (The main correction needed to be made to mine is that Justice Kiefer adopted a similar analysis to that of Chief Justice French, as opposed to the "jurisdictional facts" analysis of the other four judges in the majority on the disposition of the case).
