High likelihood of winning

I mentioned yesterday that nasty Right-to-Discriminate law in Mississippi was struck down minutes before it was to go into effect. Jim Burroway of Box Turtle Bulletin has details. What Judge Carlton Reeves did was actually an injunction. This isn't the final ruling on the law; that's still to come. The injunction keeps the law from hurting people until that final ruling.

Reeves did that because he said those seeking to strike down the law have a very high likelihood of winning their case. From the length and detail of his injunction we can see why he thinks that. There's almost enough detail for it to be the final ruling – except he had a deadline. I'll let you explore his reasoning on your own.
