… If These Arguments are any Indication [#SCOTUS][#Friedrichs v CTA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 17th,2016

.. then the public sector unions throughout the country are in big trouble .

.. you would expect that Alito , Thomas , & Roberts would be solid votes to uphold Friedrichs are the likelies , Justices Kennedy and Scalia . I would also count among the possibles one of the liberals , Justice Steven Breyer ..

.. from the arguments , Scalia will be a strong vote to uphold . He may well even get the majority opinion to write , that is if the Chief Justice [Roberts] does not do so himself ..

… then there is Tony Kennedy . He literally is SCOTUS ‘ resident ” weather vane , ” that is the swing vote in may of the cases . he may well be a swing vote , but he is still nominally a conservative . One should try to remember that . So , in this case , he is a Yes vote ..

.. in arguments , Breyer was very leery about overriding the current precedent [Abood v Detroit Bd of Ed] . It does not mean that he will not do so . In recent cases , such as Knox v C.T.A , Breyer voted with the conservatives . It is possible , especially if he is given the majority opinion to write , that Breyer will do so again …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 22nd,2014

.. Well , we have another full week to wait for the fun opinions . A lot of the good stuff [Noel Canning , Hobby Lobby , etc] will likely come out on the 30th , on the last day of the month (and of the term) …

… What Is Jim Sensenbrenner Thinkingg?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 9th,2014

.. John Boehner should and must put a stop to this , immediately .

.. Project Veritas (that is Jim O ‘ Keefe , again) caught Sensenbrenner in the act of making a political ass of himself . The U.S. Supreme Court had sound reasons for ruling the way that it did in Shelby County v. Holder . The information that the Department of InJustice was using was from 1965 , for God ‘ s Sake . The bail – out provisions in the law were grossly unjust . There was no practical way for a covered jurisdiction to escape coverage , if Main InJustice did not want them to . There was no procedural or substantial due process at all …

.. And , now  , Jim Sensenbrenner wants to give this power back to Main InJustice . Especially to this administration ‘ s Department of InJustice . What is this idiot thinking ? Those idiots in Eric Holder ‘ s InJustice Department are a bunch of radical leftist racists . They would run wild with this power and grossly abuse it , like they have already …

.. No thank you …
