    Front page of Drudge Report!

    UNANIMOUS: Supreme Court sides with WAL-MART in sex-discrimination case...
    UNANIMOUS: Blocks states' climate change lawsuit...
    Won't hear ACORN claim over gov't funding...

    DRUDGE REPORT 2011®

    And the lawsuits from States suing Obama care haven't even reached the USSC!

    I thought you libs told us it was "Constitutional" if the USSC said so!

    I mean you libs sure told us that in the affirmative when it came to Roe v. Wade and all those "separation of church and state" decisions!

    But Bush v. Gore comes along and suddenly what the USSC says isn't the last word on the Constitution any more!

    So, what will be the flip flop on these?

    I mean you idiot libs can't have it both ways. You can't tell us that Roe v. Wade is the final Constitutional word on abortion BUT any USSC decision that goes against your agenda ISN'T the final Constitutional word.

    So, which flip flop will we get on this one?

    I can't wait to hear!

    Try honesty, truthdon'tmattertoyou.

    The BASIC ruling which dismissed the CLASS ACTION lawsuit was certainly unanimous.

    The Justices did split (very narrowly in fact) on whether the suits -- as NON class action individual suits -- could continue.

    And they can.

    But the SCOTUS smack down was on the CLASS ACTION aspect; and THAT was unanimous.

    The justices all agreed that the lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. cannot proceed as a class action in its current form, reversing a decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. But they split 5-4 along ideological lines over whether the plaintiffs should in essence get another chance to make their case.

    Which still boils down to a unanimous decision they can't proceed as a class action.

    None of these are any great surprise given the current make up of the court. Scalia, Thomas and Alito should not even be supreme court judges.

    Yeah, only people who think the Constitution is a "living document" should be on the USSC right?

    "Elections Have Consequences."

    It's only true and acceptable when Obama and Pelosi say it. Otherwise, it shouldn't be. :lmao:

    two different cases in Wal Mart. 9-0 in the issue of class action, as there was no unifying action or policy from wal mart they could point to as discriminatory, as much of the policy was delegated.

    Individual stores had problems, and cases can procede against the individual stores. But it can be pointed out that the stores with problems acted contrary to stated company policy if there were violations.

    The greenhouse gas thing is about judges making law parallel to the legislative and executive process. A huge win for common sense.

    The acorn case is more problematic. It amounts to a bill of attainder. Congress said they can't get money because we think they broke the law.
