Roma locuta est, causa finita est...

In [its amicus brief] the Holy See has spoken, laying to rest any previous doubts: Fuller has not been a member of any Catholic religious order for more than 30 years. Period. The district judge has no authority to question that ruling. A jury has no authority to question it. We have no authority to question it.
-Justice Posner writing for a unanimous panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in McCarthy v Fuller (10 April 2013)
