Let's hope that this "judge" gets a scathing rebuke from a higher court.
She should be impeached by Congress, but they don't have the spine for anything remotely like wresting the reins of government from the judicial oligarchy.

Biography: An attorney and judge, Anna Diggs Taylor was the first African-American woman appointed to a federal judgeship in Michigan and later became the first African-American woman to be named chief federal judge in the Eastern District of Michigan. Taylor has used her positions to advance civil rights throughout the United States. Born Anna Katherine Johnston in 1932 in Washington, D.C., Taylor grew up in a household in which politics and civil rights were highly valued. Her parents sent her to private school in Massachusetts because they felt she needed a greater challenge than the local schools provided. She graduated in 1950 from Northfield School for Girls in Massachusetts and then enrolled at Barnard College where she earned a B.A. in Economics. She entered Yale University Law School and earned her law degree in 1957. After graduation she could not find a job in a private law firm due to the prejudices against African Americans and women. She found work as a solicitor for the Department of Labor, working under J. Ernest Wilkins, the first African American to hold a sub-cabinet post in the United States government. In 1960 Taylor married United States Representative Charles Diggs, Jr., and she moved to Detroit. After moving to Detroit, Taylor worked for a year as an assistant county prosecutor in Wayne County. In 1964 she spent the summer in Mississippi as part of the National Lawyers Guild civil rights program to provide legal services for civil rights activists, arriving on the day that three civil rights workers disappeared in Philadelphia, Mississippi. When Taylor and other attorneys went to the sheriff's office to ask about the disappearance they were surrounded by a crowd of angry whites, who hurled racial epithets at Taylor and her companions. In 1966 Taylor became assistant United States attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. After the birth of her daughter, she worked managing her husband's Detroit office until their divorce in 1971. From 1970 to 1975 she was a partner in the law firm Zwerdling, Mauer, Diggs, and Papp. In 1976 she married S. Martin Taylor. Taylor became active in politics, helping Coleman Young in his 1973 campaign and Jimmy Carter in his 1976 victory. After Young's election, Taylor was named special counsel to the City of Detroit and then in 1975 accepted the full time position as assistant corporation counsel for the city. She successfully defended new city policies that established affirmative action hiring practices and outlawed discrimination in two private yacht clubs located on city-owned Belle Isle. Taylor became the first African-American women named to a Michigan federal court on November 15, 1979, when she was sworn in as a federal judge to the U.S. District Court for the Eastren (sic) District of Michigan. In 1997 she became the first African-American woman to be named chief judge of Eastern District of the United States District Court. In 1998 Taylor stepped down as chief judge in order to reduce her workload. She continued to serve as a senior federal judge ........................................................ http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=7494 ........................................................ NLG: The Legal Fifth Column By Jesse Rigsby....................................... FrontPageMagazine.com | April 25, 2003 ...................... The National Lawyers Guild (NLG, also "the Guild") embraces every anti-America, anti-capitalist, anti-war, anti-Israel, and "anti-imperialist" cause in vogue among the far left and declares itself "dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system." If this strikes the reader as a slight hint that the Guilds underlying ideology is not exactly laissez-faire capitalism, that is because it is not. While the Guild is not officially communist or Marxist, its membership, leadership, past internal struggles, and adopted stances consistently point to an organization whose underlying convictions could best be described as such.

(The two hallmarks of Liberals: Fantasy and Hypocrisy)
The ACLU sued on behalf of a group of journalists, lawyers and researchers who suspected that government eavesdroppers had targeted their international calls.
Now that's a good reason to sue the federal government.
I suspect the ACLU are a$$holes. Can I sue them? Scratch that. I know they are.
An activist judge, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, appointed by the worst president in American history, Jimmy Carter. That should say it all about this lunatic in a black robe. This ACLU loyalist judge has in fact given constitutional rights to the very same people that want to kill her. One week removed from England stopping a massive terrorist attack, using similar tactics and this judge says we cant do so. You libs cry that we arent any safer than we were on 9-11-01, yet you take away the very tools that are protecting us. Your elected leaders cheer, "We killed the Patriot Act" and then say we arent safe. The American Criminal Liberty Union (ACLU) and ANSWER hate my country and you libs follow in their lead. You all are a pathetic bunch and it will be your doing and thinking that is going to get us killed.
This is more of the RAT game of undermining our system of justice. Like I needed someone to tell me this whacko is a dem operative. How do these slimes get to be judges?
Klinton started the spying on innocent Americans so he should be the one going to jail.

(Hard core conservative)
There are no hereditary kings in America and no power not created by the Constitution.
This comment by the "judge" is nothing more than a bumper sticker slogan from the back of a Subaru in Berkley. Obviously the reference to no hereditary kings is a swipe at Bush by the smug leftist.
This is a classic example of a liberal, appointed to the bench by a Democrat, acting out their personal opinions rather than applying case law.
And the scenario is well established:
1) A high profile case given to a liberal judge.
2) Activist liberal judge rules against conservative case (surprise, surprise).
3) All the MSM scream headlines the next day how Bush/Republicans/conservative case was "RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL BY COURT".
4) The case eventually goes to the Supreme Court who then knock the stuffings out of the lower courts decision.
5) Media reports Supreme Courts ruling on page A16 with one paragraph.

"There are no hereditary kings in America and no power not created by the Constitution," U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor of Detroit...
Ha! that's laughable. I bet if someone did a search of her decisions there would be plenty of instances where she found emanations and prenumbras...

what does the US Supreme Court do for a living?
ummmm, do something?
She, like the leakers and the NYT et al., is no less than a traitor to this country.
|"There are no hereditary kings in America"
What the hell does this statement mean? Where in the argument does a king come into play. Who in America doesn't realize we have no kings. This judge apparently hangs out and posts in liberal blogs in her spare time. Spare time that I personally hope increases for the sake of any poor soul to come under the influence of her court.
Just that sentence alone gives her motives away. I am becoming more and more disillusioned in "the rule of law" in our country. It is being abused!

Tell that to 5 supreme court justices.
