Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist declined today to disqualify himself from Microsoft cases, even though his son is a partner in a Boston law firm hired by Microsoft in another case. "My son's personal and financial concerns will not be affected by our disposition of the Supreme Court's Microsoft matters," the Chief Justice said in a statement. "Ya know, that boy's makin' a shitload of money," he did not add.
The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish."--Article III, Section 1.
So, if Congress can create the "inferior" courts, it can most certainly take away their jurisdiction.
So, like I said, the 1970s limiting of the 1913 Expediting Act was a stupid law.... reinforced by this stupid court, especially Mr. Chief Justin Rqeqr090jhist, who is a certifiable PIG of a man, and should have been buried several years ago when he overdosed on Valium.posted by Snarl at 12:41 PM on September 26, 2000
