Thank God. Too bad I have zero faith that The Supremes won't just reverse that decision.
Fuck yes bitches! I doubt it will stay, but shit...gotta get excited when at least one thing goes our way...
I'm guessing George won't be nominating Judge Motz for the supreme court anytime soon then, huh?
did they let our enemy combatant friend go? somehow i don't think they will just yet...
I wonder how long until Rove is knocking on their doors and suggesting they retire.
Ok. I'm a court watcher. And this decision is very, very endangered. Look at the panel. The 4th Circuit is the most conservative court in the country, with the possible exception of the DC Circuit and the 5th Circuit. The panel that decided the case, however, had two of the only liberals in the Circuit on it. Motz is an old liberal from Baltimore. And Gregory is the lone African American appointed by Clinton on the 4th Circuit. In other words, by some freak coincidence, this case was heard by a majority liberal panel on a majority nut-ball conservative court.
The case doesn't even have to go to the Supreme Court to be overturned. The 4th Circuit itself, can do it. Each of the Federal Courts of Appeals has the power to review a panel decision of the court and reverse it if a majority of the active, non-recused sitting judges agrees to do it. The process in called en banc review.
So don't hold your breath kids. This decision may not have much staying power.
Or they'll find cyanide in their creme brulee.
