Welcome to the real world of judges.
If you want to be frightened by the level of judicial incompetence, visit any state bar convention. (not the ABA, they are licence irrelevant) Those who are actual licensed lawyers sitting on the bench.
You will be SHOCKED at the level of senility (as in medical don't know where they are) of some of these judges.
Carter paid her off with this judicial appointment and now we have an annex to the 9th circus.
This is a Jimmah Carter, affirmative action judge...what can the nation expect from such an appointee?
Did he slice and dice her or what? Wow! "Judge" Diggs-Taylor really messed up on this one. Assuming the Court of Appeals is no less harsh than Bryan Cunningham, that will be the first step in getting her removed from the bench before she can do more harm.
In 1976 I busted one of my soldiers with 2 POUNDS OF HEROIN. One of Jimmy Carter's newly-appointed federal magistrates gave the perp 3 months in federal lockup! I'll bet that magistrate is still on the bench.
Let's hope the COurt of Appeals makes short work of this and foregoes the professional courtesies and calls Taylor's ruling exactly what it is: a Crock.
I'm not a bushbot, and I even know that Bush is not a conservative, but this is a battle over judges, and the one thing he has done right, other than the execution of the WOT,is his appointment of judges ( he made one mistake, but the base, with the help of certain liberal democrats made her go away, and was replaced with a real judge ).
The funny (in a self delusional way) thing about the sort of stuff like this, is that the leftists actually think that if they do these things, the islamofascists will actually like them, rather than looking at them as disposable, useful idiots.
Does anyone else remember the calls of moonbats upset that New York was attacked, and they couldn't understand why the islamofascists would attack people who didn't vote for George Bush!
Savage is right. Liberalism IS a mental disorder!
... the only plausible explanation is that she wanted the result she wanted and was willing to ignore and misread vast portions of constitutional law to get there, gambling the lives and security of her fellow Americans in the bargain.
TREASON in the name of politics.
This woman is dumb as a bag of hair. She's probably one of those "9/11 was an inside job" nutbags/
Even my liberal local paper ran a wire service story/headline suggesting the ruling would likely be overturned.
Well, that's the only plausible explanation only if you're afraid to question some of your own assumptions. The assumption that since the judge is a law professor and has been on the bench since 1979, therefore she is not an amateur, is ripe for examination. Could it be that this judge is another "Ward Churchill"? Graduated from high school and college without proper qualifications, admitted to law school without proper qualifications, hired by a law school or law firm without proper qualifications, and appointed to her judgeship without proper qualifications, all the while being lauded for her impeccable qualifications?
Great article. However, he doesn't even mention her nonsensical "standing" ruling, which should have cut off the whole case.
