High Court Won't Hear Case Against Halliburton

Source: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court has ruled out reviving lawsuits against Halliburton Corp. over insurgent ambushes that killed civilian truck drivers in Iraq.

In its order Tuesday, the court said it will not review a federal appeals court ruling that threw out suits filed by truckers and their families claiming that Halliburton and its former KBR Inc. subsidiary knowingly sent military supply convoys into danger on roads in the Baghdad area.

The attacks killed seven KBR drivers and injured at least 10 others in April 2004.

2. The dancing supremes dancing for their masters yet again

The corporate elites own the supremes and they dance for them any time.

So much for the rule of law.

3. We're in for a bad time at the Supreme Court this session.

There'll be a lot of alternate reality and conservative judicial activism by the court this term.

My hypothesis is that they're going to ramrod as much of the conservative agenda through as they can before Obama can appoint liberal justices in his second term and stop the runaway train of conservative gang rape to the legal framework of the country.

7. What conservative Justice do you believe Obama would replace?

Unless one were to die or something, there is no way any would step down while a Democrat was President.. Ginsberg is the only likely candidate and she is already a Liberal..
