Bond Returns

| 0 Comments
Carol Bond, that is.  She is a despicable person who may just be right on the legal question.

She is not the only despicable person in the story.  Her husband and best friend had an affair, resulting in the friend's pregnancy.  Bond was certainly justified in being angry and taking action, but poison was over the top.  That is a crime for which she should have been prosecuted and punished -- by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The question is whether Congress has the authority to make a federal case out of it.  The high court previously decided she had standing to raise this objection.  (Opinion here, prior post here.)

Today the Court took up the substantive question.  Orders list is here.  Rick Pildes has this guest post at the Volokh Conspiracy.  Lyle Denniston has this post at SCOTUSblog.
