Supreme Court AZ Ruling Explained

Fellow blogger and frequent commenter drozz, has a great post today giving a full airing to the issues that the Supreme Court ruled on in Arizona v United States. I liked his notes as well, although I will not fully quote them, check out his blog yourself:
  • Three of four sections struck down. All four ruled upon the same way in the majority opinion.
  • Justice Sotomayer concurred to uphold section 2(b) (as did the other 7; Kagan recused). Guess she's now a wise white person, because that was the most racist-y racist law to every racist a racism. Or something.
  • Justice Kennedy relied heavily on past precedent to draw a clear line in state vs. federal powers. His logic was clear and sound in this opinion.
