High Court Poised To Closely Weigh Civil Rights Laws

by Robert Barnes - April 19th, 2009 - Washington Post

The Supreme Court has an opportunity to reaffirm or reshape the nation's civil rights laws as it faces a rare confluence of cases over the next two weeks, including a high-profile challenge brought by white firefighters who claim they lost out on promotions because of the "color of their skin."

The cases also touch on the Voting Rights Act, the need to provide English classes for immigrant children and, more tangentially, discriminatory mortgage lending.

I cringe when I read articles like this, since it is my expectation the supreme tyrants of an uncontrolled court system are about to sabotage our nation with some new and more insane dictates that they pretend are "law".
