“Arizona” Causes Traffic Jam
At our blog we write about areas of the law that we practice. Admittedly we do not regularly appear before the United States Supreme court nor are we known for our immigration practice. This is not to suggest we have never written about our nation's highest court, we have. US Supreme Court Ends Warrantless Police Use of GPS and Justice Sotomayor Renders Decision on Sesame Street This week with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision in Arizona vs Untied States we feel compelled to give our perspective. Much has been said about this SCOTUS immigration decision. There is no shortage of media coverage for this case. If you do not believe it just try to turn on cable television and not see a report or commentary on immigration. Some of the commentary is legal but most is political in nature. The SCOTUS decision has also created a lot of traffic on the internet. There are no shortage of articles and blog posts commenting on the decision. (Add this post to the internet discussion list.) The decision predictably caused legal tweeters to become very active in their character limited messaging. (We refrained from tweeting about this decision until now.) The Washington Post did a great piece on tweeting the SCOTUS. The best SCOTUS tweets of the day. For lawyers and non-lawyers this is a very funny read. Here are a few of our favorites: “When my children argue, I usually affirm in part and strike down in part.” “The waiting is the hardest part.” – Justice Tom Petty “Justice Roberts just detained Judge Sotomayor” Rather than read only the quoted excerpts of the article we encourage you to click the link above and read the article in its entirety. You won't regret it. With todays anticipated SCOTUS decision on Obamacare the internet should get a great workout!
