 Should the whole Supreme Court come from two schools?
Should the whole Supreme Court come from two schools?
The nomination of Elena Kagan to replace the retiring John Paul Stevens on the US Supreme Court means, if she is confirmed, all of the justices will have been at either Harvard or Yale law schools.

But why should two educational bodies provide all of the US's most senior judges? picked by bingo 1 year ago

On December 10th the Supreme Court decided two companion cases that essentially hold that the Federal Sentencing guidelines really are just guidelines. In other words, the sentencing court, after giving them consideration, is free to disregard them and impose the sentence the court thinks is appropriate in a given case. To understand the significance of this development, here is a brief overview... read full post picked by bhartzer 4 years ago

English Nazi Slogans Are Legal, German Court Rules
Is a Nazi slogan still a Nazi slogan if it is uttered in English instead of German? Not necessarily -- at least according to Germany's Federal Court of Justice.

Using Nazi symbols and slogans is a punishable crime in Germany. But now neo-Nazis may have more leeway after a federal German court ruled that slogans are not illegal if they are translated into another language. picked by Bingo 2 years ago

One Nation Under God - Upheld in Federal Appeals Court
Religious discussions aside, I think that this idiot has cost the nation a very large amount of money over something trivial. The court has ruled that "One Nation Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" on money does not violate separation of church and state.
