I participate in the ADS-L to get away from politics, and appreciate it very much when other members also refrain.

But if you have to bring it here, at least get it right.  The decision in the Endrew case was not "his", it was the decision of Judge Timothy Tymkovich.

Gorsuch wasn't even on the three-judge panel that decided the case.
