I'll bet Ellis thinks he's a shoe in for the SCOTUS. He probably is. n/t

The Plain meaning Rule and the definition of "emergency".

"Emergency": a serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action.

The Plain Meaning Rule: The Plain meaning rule is a type of statutory construction by which statutes are to be interpreted using the ordinary meaning of the language of the statute. ... Additionally, the plain meaning rule prevents courts from taking sides in legislative or political issues.
