I'll admit it, I expected the worst-- the Michigan legal/political system isn't always the most sensible entity. I expected that the judge wouldn't even consider that the pit bulls aren't the problem, but rather the people putting them in the situation.
Oh, I'm so happy to be wrong! Judge David M. Lawson saved most of the dogs, even going so far as to say that there's no reason they can't be adopted out. He ruled that several be put down because they were labeled as "champion fighters", but recommended that the lawyers for the Human Society meet with government agents and have them reassessed.
I have no idea how this guy has ruled on any other cases, but man-- did he ever serve justice today!
