Most are expecting it this week (2010.04.19).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_re_Bilski for more info.

While we're at it, some syntactic issues I can't figure out it seems.

Just curious:

why is it called "In re Bilski"?

Is 'In' used like 'With regard to'?

And why is it 're'? Is it like a reply or something? Or re-examination by a higer court?

That's what I thought, something like:

'With regard to the re-examination of the case of Bilski'

Law, like medicine, is one place where Latin is not a dead language.

Literally, "in the matter [of]".

OK, thanks, I came close.

dino: Latin isn't dead on this Desktop too, using ISO-LATIN-8859-15 here.
