Re: How Can I Sue USPS for Lost Insured Item
mid 2000's would generally be considered current. Unless there is contrary case law since the cases reviewed, a decision from the mid 1800's is considered to be current. But a case less than a decade old is generally considered to be quite recent. It is not likely you would find contrary decisions this recent to the decisions you found. It generally requires a change in the law itself or a renewal of thought to find what appears to be opposing decisions. You generally do not have the change of opinions in this short of a time so if the law hasn't changed, it is likely the decisions you have found still stand as current.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
