Consider who would be on the court to make these decisions
if Gore and/or Kerry had been elected.

And then consider why shrub got "elected"

And then consider the month of November

And then consider Haynesworth - Carswell - Miers - Bork

OK- I [ tried ] to read these decisions. Do they have any serious issues that we need to be concerned with?

The only decisions that I have ever seriously analyzed are Buckley (1976) & Citizens United (2010) my report at OWS site

Yes, I have been to your site. They are all serious issues. They just don't interest you enough until the repercussions surface.

Regulation 7 is particularly useful if you are planning to protest at the Supreme Court. Yes?

Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc. is a case that you are already aware of.

Tarrant Regional Water District v. Herrmann is a water case between Texas and Oklahoma regarding the Red River Compact and Texas lost. You may not find it interesting for any other reason than 1) water issues are still a major source of conflict between the states and 2) it usually stops jack offs that seek to argue for armed revolution and the like because they by and large do not take the real issues under consideration. Water is going to continue to be a major source of conflict in the future.

United States v. Davila is actually rather interesting. The magistrate gave advice to Davila about his plea and told him that given his record that he should probably take the advice of his attorney. Davila is claiming that because the magistrate commented then he deserves a new trial. The Supreme Court said no, lil' buckaroo.
