Not Hiding/Hiding The Ball

The First Circuit occasionally tips its hand and lets you know what it's going to do in the very first sentence of an opinion. Such is the case in Ramos-Santiago v. UPS, First Cir. No. 07-1024. The Court begins today's decision by noting the the plaintiff in this employment case "was a driver with the United Parcel Service when he failed to deliver thirty-seven packages over the span of two business days in 2003."

Weird unexplained twist: all 37 packages were addressed to a single recipient. The plaintiff apparently delivered all of his other packages without a problem on the dates in question.
