Why is the State Attorney General Arguing the Supreme Court Should Not Follow the Law

article top

I have a question for your readers.

Can you have any confidence at all in a State’s Attorney General, such as Mark Bennett, who argues that the Supreme Court should not require the Legislature [and by extension government generally] to follow the law?


That’s precisely what he did in his article of September 2, 2005, complaining about the ”’Taomae v. Lingle”’ decision.

It’s quite extraordinary if you consider it. The State’s chief law enforcement officer [who should be extremely concerned about whether the law is followed], after losing a suit complains when a court requires the law be followed.

It doesn’t seem quite right, does it.
