… An Important Case [but not at the US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 7th,2014

.. what initially I am referring to was Hobby Lobby v Sebelius . That was the current case that was at the U.S. Supreme Court only a couple of days ago …

.. this is a different case . It is one that is at a court at a different level , at the D.C. Federal Court of Appeals . It is Halbing v . Sebelius , one of a number of legal challenges that are still in the works to ObamaCrapCare . Jonathan Keim of National Review ‘ s Bench Memos has an excellent take of the legal combat [here] …

.. if I were an ObamaCrap , I would be sweating this one , just like if I were them , i would be sweating out the outcome of Hobby Lobby at the U.S. Supreme Court . From the verbal combat , from what I have read in various places , this one is likely to come out in favour of halbig in a 2 to 1 decision . You might ask …

.. Did not POTUS  pack the D.C. Appeals Court with 3 of his nominees , courtesy of Dingy Harry Reid ? Yes , he did . Appeals Court cases are heard by a 3 – judge panel , first . Then , after that , if  the Court so decides , it can hear it ” en banc . ” Usually , that means the full court , but not always . Also , the U.S. Supreme Court will be well aware of this case . More likely than not , the Supremes could opt to hear the case themselves , thus taking it away from the full court …

.. I would think and bet on a 2 –  1 decision for Halbig . Also , I think that the Supremes will act to take the case away from the full court , given the immorality of the court packing done by Dingy Harry Reid ….

… Well , What do I Think [Hobby Lobby v Sebelius] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 30th,2014

.. drawn in part from ScotusBlog , and in part from National Review ‘ s Bench Memos …

.. I think that the government is in big trouble ….

.. [h/t — ScotusBlog]..

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. — Note — this stuff by Amy Howe of ScotusBlog helps bring the dry rigamarole of law and legal arguments into plain English . It tries to translate the legal schtuff that most folks (even me , sometimes) do not always understand , and bring it to everyday folks in a simpler and plainer manner , especially less verbose …

.. back to the wars — women can still get their health insurance and their benefits . It is just that they will not be able to get their corporate bosses to finance the abortion – related part of it , the public financing of which is already illegal under federal law .

.. also , it is a substantial burden to force people over their moral objections to pay for things that for which they have substantial and paraamount moral objections to , such as abortion and abortifacient drugs . It is not that women cannot get them . The companies are not interfering in that . It is that the government cannot force individuals , either directly (as a sole proprietorship or partnership) or as a corporation (indirectly) to violate their firmly held First Amendment rights to  freedom of religion and finance something that for which they have sincerely and deeply held moral objections …
