Fun With SCOTUS on Same-Sex Marriage

Kevin Underhill is the wit behind the hilarious site Lowering the Bar, which chronicles and satirizes judges, lawyers and the entire legal system. As the Supreme Court takes up the question of same-sex marriage again, it’s worth looking at his list of amusing facts about the ruling the last time they considered it:

In a footnote, Justice Kennedy overturns the outcome of last season’s American Idol just to see if anybody is still paying attention…

Resolving an issue not raised below, Court rules unanimously that this lady over here bitching about her roommate has no standing to complain to me about it, and remands her case to the jurisdiction of somebody who cares…

Justice Thomas dissents on the grounds that there were no gay people in 1789…

Justices Scalia and Thomas join in separate opinion declaring that they’ve always found each others’ views very attractive and they don’t care who knows it.

The entire site is hilarious and I’ll probably post some more from it.

    Lowering the Bar’s Case Law Hall of Fame seems an absolute must-read. In particular there, “United States ex rel. Mayo v. Satan and His Staff” and “Stambovsky v. Ackley” for the irreligious/skeptical sort, People v. Foranyic of similarly likely interest for a civil liberties blogger, and the Canadian case of R. v Duncan which seems imperative if only for its citation pointing to Meads v. Meads — in turn, an excellent overview of the madness of Sovereign Citizens.
