« Bryan Cave Ends Keystone XL Lobbying | Main | Daily D.C. Lateral Roundup: Hunton & Williams »

April 25, 2013



If you think the federal courts are in a "sharp divide," just wait til you see Congress try to figure out what law to pass.

I can't imagine either side giving in very far to the other on issues like this. (I can easily imagine GOP libertarians at war with their party's law-n-order folks, and Dem liberals unwilling to compromise with their party's conciliatory wing.)

The judicial chaos makes for gridlock and injustices. But getting new legislation will be worse. I'd rather have the Constitutional experts rule on what the actual rights of individual privacy and law enforcement are. If that means repeated cases to the SCOTUS, so be it.
