loveblondieo: Another case I am looking forward to hearing the results on. This, I fear, will not go in the right direction.


FTA:The delay in notification was blamed on a clerical error: [Dusten] Brown's named was misspelled when Veronica's mother first filed the papers. But attorneys for Brown alleged that the mistake was purposeful.

When your name sounds like Dustin, but isn't spelled that way, you probably can't claim that any mistake is purposeful.

/not to be confused with his brother, Dust'n Brown, or sister, Dustyn Brown.

What would you consider the "right direction"?

/just curious
//I hate adoption cases when they end up like this

I challenge anyone here to read MacDonald and use it to demonstrate how anyone on the "liberal" side of the bench gives a fark about civil rights.  I'll give extra points to anyone who takes Thomas's concurring opinion to demonstrate he is the moron everyone says he is.

She should be with her legally adopted parents. Her biological mother even signed the rights over to them. He was not a part of their lives and refused to even give child support.

Absolutely correct.

loveblondieo: PanicMan: loveblondieo: Another case I am looking forward to hearing the results on. This, I fear, will not go in the right direction.

I haven't heard of that one.  From reading the article, it sounds pretty shiatty for everyone involved.

I am really rooting for the adopted parents. The biological "father" didn't want anything to do with Veronica initially.


That's a tough one.  Was the father given a choice of custody of the child?

That particular article says "terminate parental rights or pay child support" were his only options.  If he had known that full custody was on the table, would he have taken it? If so, he should have gotten child support from the mother.

Could it be that the mother wanted to give up the baby for adoption and not give it to the father (save her money)?

The only thing that really gets me about this is the whole "ICWA" angle.  The child is 3/256th native.  What "culture" was she born into?  Why should that extremely small percentage take precedence over the rest of her DNA?

Why does Scalia wear cowboy boots under his robe?
- You can't fit that much shiat in a shoe!
 
2013-06-24 09:53:30 AM  
Why was Scalia nominated to the SCOTUS?
- To keep the flies off the Justices!
 
2013-06-24 09:53:38 AM  
My first car was a Scalia. Wasn't worth the maintenance.

Grrrr....regardless of outcome of the case, Daddy is pissing me off....

Muta: SCOTUS will uphold DOMA and declare gays to be 3/5 people.


I have been losing weight lately, but I thought that was because I was dieting and on an exercise routine. Who knew SCOTUS was responsible.
 
2013-06-24 09:55:27 AM  
What's the proper procedure to ask the Court for a bathroom break?
- Excuse me Justices, I will see ya / Gonna give birth to another Scalia!
 
2013-06-24 09:56:40 AM  

tudorgurl: Absolutely correct.


Whew! I did not want to hash it out in the middle of a nice light-hearted Scalia bashing thread.

Cert granted for a bunch o' cases, including NLRB v. Noel Canning with the specific note "The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. In addition to the questions presented by the petition, the parties are directed to brief and argue the following question: Whether the President's recess-appointment power may be exercised when the Senate is convening every three days in pro forma sessions."
 
2013-06-24 09:57:46 AM  
I'm going to be glued to SCOTUSBLOG.com every day they announce decisions until this DOMA/Prop 8 thing is finally settled.
 
2013-06-24 09:58:12 AM  

BizarreMan: That's a tough one. Was the father given a choice of custody of the child?


He probably coudn't get custody as active Military, especially since he was getting deployed 4 months after the birth.
 
2013-06-24 09:58:42 AM  
It might be interesting to note that we here in South Carolina are rooting for the Capobiancos, while Oklahomans seem to be for Dusten Brown.
 
2013-06-24 10:00:08 AM  
What's a Cleveland Scalia?
- You wrap a woman in cling wrap and shiat all over her civil rights.
 
2013-06-24 10:00:13 AM  
We all tuned to CNN for the most accurate reporting on the outcome?
 
2013-06-24 10:01:25 AM  
Naked blonde walks into a bar with Scalia under one arm, and a two-foot salami under the other. The bartender says, I guess you won't be needing a drink. The naked lady says...
 
2013-06-24 10:02:06 AM  
How can you tell the new reporter on the Supreme Court beat?
- He doesn't know scat from Scalia!

That'll be lulzy.
 
2013-06-24 10:05:18 AM  
What's the delay?
 
2013-06-24 10:05:33 AM  
Why doesn't Scalia like the rodeo?
- People keep shoveling him.
 
2013-06-24 10:09:11 AM  
Private! How tall are you?
- Sir! Five nine sir!
I didn't know you could stack Scalia that high!
 
2013-06-24 10:09:29 AM  
I don't think we're getting it today.
 
2013-06-24 10:10:23 AM  

cameroncrazy1984: I don't think we're getting it today.


But there's 2 "its"! At least one should come, or they are just assholes.
 
2013-06-24 10:10:35 AM  
Civil liberties advocates often say: "Wish in one hand and Scalia in the other and see which fills up first."

DamnYankees: cameroncrazy1984: I don't think we're getting it today.

I think they're just being assholes. There's no other explanation. That's really what I want to believe.
 
2013-06-24 10:11:13 AM  

cameroncrazy1984: I don't think we're getting it today.


And they Supreme Court won't release any decisions either?
 
2013-06-24 10:11:57 AM  
How can you tell your gay neighbor is a conservative?
- His dick tastes like Scalia!
 
2013-06-24 10:12:56 AM  
From ScotusBlog: The first 2 decisions took up one of the three boxes of printouts.
 
2013-06-24 10:13:18 AM  
Oh yeah, knock out the important ones first....
 
2013-06-24 10:13:23 AM  

PanicMan: From ScotusBlog: The first 2 decisions took up one of the three boxes of printouts.


Third decision is out, and its more boring than the first two.
 
2013-06-24 10:13:37 AM  
*sigh* Looks like it's back to waiting. Do they announce decisions every day for the rest of this week, or what? Anyone know how this works?
 
2013-06-24 10:15:05 AM  
FISHER IS OUT. RESULTS BEING READ.
 
2013-06-24 10:15:05 AM  
Why is anilingus like arguing before the SCOTUS?
- One slip of the tongue and you're in deep Scalia.
 
2013-06-24 10:16:13 AM  
"The holding is because the Fifth Circuit did not hold the university to the demanding burden of strict scrutiny articulated in Grutter and Bakke, its decision afffiming the district court's grant of summary judgment was incorrect. "

Clear as day...
 
2013-06-24 10:16:29 AM  
There's a report on Fisher v. UTA
 
2013-06-24 10:16:46 AM  
Here I sit, just had to pee-a,
But paid my dime to take a Scalia.
 
2013-06-24 10:17:22 AM  
7-1 ruling in Fisher, Ginsburg dissents, Kagan recuses.
 
2013-06-24 10:17:46 AM  

loveblondieo: tudorgurl: Absolutely correct.

Whew! I did not want to hash it out in the middle of a nice light-hearted Scalia bashing thread.


LOL Sorry, I didn't mean to sound all teacher-y.
 
2013-06-24 10:17:47 AM  
How can you tell the conservative wing of the Court is stuck up?
- They think their Scalia don't stink!

Even a boring decision can be an interesting read.  But yeah, I'm just here for the big decisions.
 
2013-06-24 10:18:04 AM  
I swear to god I'm literate....
 
2013-06-24 10:18:33 AM  
I still have no idea what the ruling in Fisher means. And I'm a real life lawyer, I get paid for it and everything.
 
2013-06-24 10:18:43 AM  
Sooo... as best I can tell. District court told Fisher to STFU, appeals court said "Yeah, seriously STFU" without hearings, and Supreme Court is now saying "Hey appeals court, might wanna have a hearing or two before you tell her to STFU"

Ginsburg apparently is the only dissenter (7-1 decision, Kagan recused). Thomas, of course, says he would overrule the entire concept of affirmative action.
 
2013-06-24 10:19:43 AM  
Conservatives' opinions are like assholes. Every conservative has one, and most of 'em smell like Scalia.
 
2013-06-24 10:19:54 AM  

DamnYankees: I still have no idea what the ruling in Fisher means. And I'm a real life lawyer, I get paid for it and everything.


Then I don't feel so bad. It seems "remanded" and "Vacated" are mutually exclusive.
