Kissing Up to the Boss

by Tom Bozzo

Apparently J. Michael Luttig thinks he still has a shot at Justice O'Connor's job. The catch being that if he got it, we'd have no assurance even that the trains would run on time.
I'm still trying to figure that one out; hoping Scott at LG&M will explain it.

It appears that the decision is that, since the bill passed would permit unreasonable (search and) seizure, unreasonable seizure is legal even if that pesky little Constitution thing explicitly forbids it.
that's very harsh. are you calling him a nazi?
Bryan: Yes, it is harsh, but the intended reference is to different Axis power.

Ken: I'll be interested in seeing a professionally-informed opinion, too. A clarification to the Post article was meant to clarify that Luttig's ruling only applied in wartime, but that's not much comfort since it's not obviously a binding constraint.
