    I agree with Scalia. Congress should do its job of confirming Bush nominees to the courts, and then we won’t have to worry about whether the courts cite foreign law.

    The problem is that our judiciary is too strong, legislating when it should just adhere to the language of the law!! If you can not understand why current foreign law is irrelevant to our Constitution, you should not aspire to be an attorney, much less a judge. Said practice borders on treason, as well as constituting a total non sequitur. I notice SCOTUS does not cite foreign law in abortion cases, because they would have to overrule the ridiculous Roe v. Wade decision. Foreign law citation is just manipulated to reach the result Ginsburg et al want when they can’t find basis for it in US Law!! What a joke!! Do they really think we are that gullible?
