Judge overstepped authority
Sunday, March 3, 2019
Legal precedent: a legal case that establishes a principle or rule. The rule is used by the court to decide later cases with similar issues or facts. No ruling has been leaned on more than Roe v. Wade. The ruling established the right to kill an unborn until fetal viability, the time that the baby could live outside the womb. Viability is subjective. Only God knows if the baby would live. WWJD?
Judge Bryan Collins has set a new legal precedent. Collins has canceled millions of votes on voter ID and the tax cap. Collins contends that the vote is invalid because the General Assembly is invalid because of district gerrymandering. Therefore, any law passed by these legislators are invalid. Sorry Gov. Cooper, you can’t disperse the billions of dollars for hurricane victims. Sorry teachers, no pay raise, no funding for more teachers and funding for more schools.
Judge Collins holds an elective position in Wake County. I estimate that at least 90 percent of North Carolina voters had no voice as to whether this man qualifies as an unbiased judge. What right does he have to cancel our majority vote?
