USC: Judge Waffle presiding

14 Jun

While scholars of the Supreme Court will probably continue to debate the question of whether the Court responds to public opinion or not, I would venture that the Court's dismissing the Pledge case on a technicality pretty much answers the question conclusively. The justices most likely to hold the pledge unconstitutional found a way to essentially abstain, while the rest just went along with it to save face for their fellow justices. Hopefully, the Court won't start acting like Congress and not do anything in the off chance it will piss someone off.

In a related note, the the Pledge case has silver lining for the plaintiff — $1 million.
