Here is some interesting information regarding the Appeal to the US Federal District Court 9th Circuit yesterday regarding the Trump Administration's Executive Order regarding entry to the US from seven named countries.
Before reading it please allow me to stipulate that I believe the Trump Admin. will lose the Application/Appeal. I believe the lower court judge's ruling will be upheld. This is not for legal leasons but for the politicized nature of the debate in general and this circuit in particular.
This analysis of the case is from CNN's Legal Analyst who studied law at Harvard and politics at Oxford (which, if you can't get into Dalhousie, are an acceptable back-up plan). If her analysis is correct, and my prediction is correct, then we are left with two questions:
(a) How are we to know which laws we must obey?
(b) If the judges do not obey the law, why must we obey their decisions?
