Worst Court Cases Ever
« on: December 04, 2005, 12:22:38 PM »

In my business law class, I'm supposed to research and present details about a court case.
Since they're all mindless statists, I'd like to present a rather shameful piece of judicial history.

I'm considering the Irwin Schiff trial, but I can't get much information about the trial except from his site...
Maybe those cases where the free market tried to desegregate transportation but the courts upheld the Jim Crow laws as mandatory and fined/jailed people who tried to integrate.

Recent cases are better though, they strike home.

Suggestions?

That would be great!  Not sure if there is some reason that they can't do it though...

There's a case in Utah where a 12 year old boy and a 13 year old girl were both convicted of statutory rape for having consensual sex.  Apparently neither of them is legally capable of consenting to sex, but they're both legally capable of commiting rape.  Now they'll both be on the sex offender registry as pedophiles for the rest of their lives. (How's that for unintended consequences of Megan's Law?)

Take the case, the federal medical pot case.  You know, where the SC said that just because 11 states say sick people can take useful drugs with a prescription, it doesn't mean they can.  In fact, if they do, they will be put in jail and their med. will be taken from them (and maybe their house).

I assume they're coming out against it? If so, someone needs a little push in the libertarian direction.
