Seventh Circuit tells Southwest Airlines that its argument is “too feeble to require comment”

Via LawGeek comes this amusing order from the Seventh Circuit denying Southwest’s Airline‘s petition for rehearing:

PER CURIAM. Southwest Airlines’ petition for rehearing asserts that it presented an argument that our opinion overlooked: “whether the 1958 Federal Aviation Act, 49 U.S.C. § 40101 et. [sic] sec. [sic], preempts State authority to establish non-uniform and individual State standards for aviation safety.”

We had not overlooked this argument; we just thought it too feeble to require comment.
