Supreme Court matters

A petition to the Supreme Court, Dallas County v. Duvall, alleging conditions of confinement when inmate contracted staph (MRSA) virus losing sight in the eye, looks interesting.

Even more curious, an entire handful of cases set for November argument in the Supreme Court in, surprise, ineffective assistance, prosecutor misconduct, habeas...warrantless search by GPS! The insignificance taken on by the overnightly loss of net worth by a factor of ten pales by comparison. Only a prolonged legal battle between two deceased individuals over a measly sum of 89 million could be more interesting. Imagine how they are going to spend that money...
