Wow a CA State court obeying the law? Will wonders never cease!
Robes with cajones underneath? Who whudda thunkit?
” violated the states constitution”
What about the U.S. Constitution? They cannot add additional requirements beyond that.
...the “Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act,” signed into law in July, violated the states constitution as it related to the president’s tax returns.******
What Newsome and crew ignored the CA State Constitution?
Who’da thunk it...
Let the liberal meltdown begin.
The law was so obviously unconstitutional that even the California Supreme Court had to strike it down.
Democrats take a bong in the Bluest state in the country!
HELL FREEZES OVER FILM AT 11
WOOOOOAAA I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.
Not tired of winning. MAGA 2020
No cajones here. They fully understood how they would be slapped down in federal court where this would not have even made it out of the Ninth Dist, let alone SCOTUS.And some of these robes have hopes of better positions with the Fed bench.
Interesting. Watching. Thanks.
the california law was PATENTLY OBVIOUSLY NOTORIOUSLY unconstitutional and everyone could see it
but it is still great that a Commiefornia court was willing to obey the constitution this once
good job, court! (now, how about overturning all of CA’s ‘gun control’ laws, too....?)
“The law was so obviously unconstitutional that even the California Supreme Court had to strike it down.”
yeah, they acted quickly so they could be SCOTUS to it ...
It’s the big one Ethel! What a surprise...
Still waiting on the Supreme court to strike down illegal funding of nonprofits in the next budget. This is all bullsht.
