Chief Justice Roberts strikes again

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the Supreme Court's liberal wing on Thursday in temporarily blocking a Louisiana law that would have placed restrictions on abortion clinics, in the high court's first major ruling on abortion since the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Louisiana law is virtually identical to a Texas measure the justices struck down three years ago by a 5-3 vote, shortly after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Roberts dissented in that case, when he was not the deciding vote, and sided with the conservative minority that wanted to uphold the anti-abortion law -- making his decision on Thursday a significant reversal.
He was a mistake to put on the Supreme Court and goes to show that the Justices are a lasting legacy of the President who nominated them.

He's building credibility for future pro-2A rulings. <a guy can dream, anyway>
