Yeah, torts all around. The drunks can sue the liquor / beer / wine industry and also sue the car manufacturers, just like the victims. And the coppers and breath testing device makers can also join the fun.

#6 With any luck the court is waiting for a very bad decision in this case that they can overturn with prejudice. And maybe Ruthie G dies between now and when the appeal is heard.

#8 I heard this during the Obamacare debate, and it really hit home for me. The Supreme Court can do a lot. It can hold back the tide of the worst people/decisions in our society. But it can never hold back everything, or even the majority of awful things in our country. We will, one way or another, end up with the laws and society that we deserve (if not the ones that we want). Liberals deserve an awful society, and they are multiplying thanks to their control of so many facets of society. Thus, more and more areas of our society become awful, from certain portions of the economy to entire regions like the West Coast. Our country is sick, but the Supreme Court isn't a doctor. Just the immune system.

#9 #4 So, how did Kavanaugh vote?
Posted by: g(r)omgoru

He didn't, the SC declined to hear the case.

Take away from: How does the SCOTUS decide what cases to hear?

"Just four of nine justices have to vote 'Yes' to take a case and Hasday says most votes are likely quick because of the sheer math involved. Each year, there are roughly 7,000 cases that petition the court trying to be heard. They only take between 100 and 150."

#10 There was no AR used. It was in the trunk of the car. He used 2 pistols.

#11 Regarding deciding which cases to hear, it's mostly the SC clerks that does the reading and if a "petition for certiorari" meet specific criteria, then it's passed on to the SC judges for final decision as to whether or not the SC will hear the case.

Do a DDG search for "How does the SCOTUS decide what cases to hear" if you want more information, there's a lot to wade through.

#13 What Vernal said. Don't ask more of the Court than it was designed to bear.
