ep83 said[quote][cite]CuriousJockAZ[/cite]Hmmm...would be interesting to know if any of the judges that President Bush appointed had anything to do with helping make this decision happen. Of course, he won't get any credit for that.
Nope, none of them.
Judge Ronald Gould appointed by Clinton in 1999.
Judge Susan Graber appointed by Clinton in 1997.
Judge William Canby appointed by Carter in 1980.
Gould and Graber just said "use a higher level of scrutiny than rational basis." Canby would have required strict scrutiny.
So now you know and can stop wondering, not that there was really any mystery as to how a Bush appointee would view this case. Tolerance is not their strong suit.
Golly. I am so shocked. I wonder if Clinton/Carter will get any credit for that.
