"Another Hobbs Act Decision Rejects Commerce Clause Challenge"

And another informative post here.

UPDATE: I have an excellent model motion to dismiss a Hobbs Act charge under Lopez (and, by extension, Morrison).  I didn't write it.  I downloaded it from a Federal Defender's public brief bank.  I can't find the site so I'm uploading the file here.  If anyone recognizes from whence the motion came, leave a comment or e-mail me, so I can provide a link to the FD's site.
