The Joys of a Conservative Court
You have got to love the impact Reagan, Bush and Bush have had on the Supreme Court over the past few decades. Sure, they've rolled out a few clunkers of judiciary opinion here and there, but over all, a Conservative court is good for the police.
- WASHINGTON---- A deadline is a deadline is a deadline, the Supreme Court said Wednesday in refusing to allow a man wrongly imprisoned for more than eight years to sue the police officers who arrested him.
Andre Wallace, whose murder conviction was overturned in 2002, waited several years too long to file his false arrest lawsuit, the court said in a 7-2 ruling.
We'd hope that Bush gets one more chance to put a strict originalist on the Court before he leaves office. It'd be a bloodbath with a democratic controlled Senate, but entertaining politics to say the least and energizing to the Conservative base at the outside. It'll give the liberals nightmares for the next 15 years.
