JUDICIAL TYRANNY - More on SCOTUS source use!

Family News in Focus is reporting ...

Congress is considering a resolution denouncing the citation of foreign legal precedents in U.S. court cases, a move prompted by the Supreme Court's recent nods to international law in ruling on contentious issues.

The resolution comes from the office of Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and simply states that rulings "should not be based on judgments, laws or pronouncements of foreign institutions."

Kudos to Cornyn ...
John Drogan, Cornyn's press secretary, said his boss is determined to fulfill President Bush's promise to find judges who will interpret the law rather than make it. "He's concerned," Drogan said of Cornyn, "that little by little the American people may be losing control over meaning of our laws and our Constitution."
With SCOTUS's recent history of ignoring the people's will, our traditions, and our elected leaders there's little chance they'll take notice of this effort but I'm glad to see someone somewhere in government speaking out on this abomination.

For those of you who don't know what is happening one example should help you focus: recently one justice not only used another nation's laws as justification for his opinion but also cited two unratified international treaties in that opinion as well. Bryer, Kennedy, and O'Connor are all three guitly of these egregious actions.
