Well fine and great, but we still should fix the mistake. This is a non-issue now.
No its called a balk.. they are going to get Fed courts decide now.
"directly defying an act of Congress"
Are you serious ..?? This is crazy.
OK, now can the House order the whole SCOFflaw to be hauled up to DC to answer?
The note was to Petronski.
He's single, and so's bd.
Please could this be removed from breaking news so no one gets the wrong idea or becomes unduly upset? Thanks.
oh, far from me to bust up a courtship.
Possible .. sure looks like a battle between the courts and the legislative branch
And the Fl courts are sticking their thumb in the legislative branch's eye
Ahh.. sorry I misread it, wrong court.
I'm not sure now who the controlling authority is now.
The last thing we need is a turf war.
It should never have come to this.
So an unelected demon in a black robe is over riding the nations elected law makers? This judge is an unconstitutional dictator.
Congress cannot let this ride, or every left wing Marxist activist judge in the nation will demand we bow and obey.
I certainly hope that's not what this means, because if it is, the leaders in Washington had better put their foot down once and for all. Enough activist judges already!
Thanks for the clarification, you are correct.
Just trying my hand at matchmakin' lol.
Hopefully we will see some judicial impeachments come out of this.
No court, federal or state, can rule on any matter unless that court has jurisdiction to hear that matter. It appears that Congress sought relief from the state courts, but their petition for relief did not state a basis for Florida state jurisdiction. Hence, the Florida Supremes have no basis to rule on the merits of Congress' request.
Uh, actually it means quite a bit. This is a subpeona from the US Congress. Congress most definitely has jurisdiction to issue subpeonas. They also have the capacity to enforce them.
And the Florida SC has just told Congress to get lost. People go to jail for that.
Sure looks that way
Subpeonas and what they did last night are two different issues.. We are in Fed court now.. this is beyound the State's courts reach..
